Over the summer, visited Columbia University in New York City to participate in an evening of presentations that were part of an interesting new graduate level course they are offering on IoT. The event, organized by IoT Central, had a packed agenda full of IoT presentations and information, including some demos of Atmel devices sending data to data services.

At the event, we demoed some early versions of our Ship IoT initiative, showing how Atmel devices can be connected to multiple data services from the data service exchange. In this demonstration we used PubNub for connectivity, and routed it to data services,, and Circonus.

This event was particularly interesting as Steve Burr, Director of Engineering at, unboxes and connects an Atmel device live during the demo and starts getting temperature readings from it. Live demos are always fun to watch! The IoT Central group recorded the event and you can watch the video below.

The entire video is full of interesting IoT information. If you're looking for specific parts, the Atmel portion starts at about 28 minutes, starts around 32 minutes, and the technical portion starts around 38:30.
