Introduction to Apache Edgent

In this Google+ Hangout, the committers presented a high-level overview of the Apache Edgent project and demonstrated how you can write, monitor and debug your Edgent application. They also showed you how you can get involved and contribute to the Edgent community.

Apache Edgent on Raspberry Pi

In this Google+ Hangout, we showed how you can use Edgent to work with real sensor data on a Raspberry Pi. We also showed a demo application, where we implemented a smart sprinkler system using Apache Edgent, Raspberry Pi, Watson IoT Platform and Streaming Analytics Service.

Analyze data at the edge of your networks: Join Apache Edgent (dW Open Tech Talk)





11 AM - 12 PM (EST)


Sensor Data Analytics Acceleration with Apache Edgent (Meetup)

With an ever increasing number of connected devices anticipated, a flood of data derived from sensors and “things,” whether a temperature sensor, smart traffic light, or vehicle, raise a new set of challenges for enterprises. The challenges (and value) come from analysis of that flood of data in order to reap the benefits and drive business value. 

This presentation and demonstration will focus on edge analytics using Apache Quarks (now Apache Edgent), an open source community for accelerating analytics at the edge.

Apache Edgent: Datastreaming and Analytics for IoT Devices (Meetup)

Processing data in real time is an increasingly important problem in modern day data engineering. Programming frameworks such as Spark, Apex, and Flink have been adopted to satisfy this need. These frameworks, however, are designed to perform data processing in a cluster or large datacenter, ignoring the so-called "edge" devices for IoT. Apache Edgent (currently in incubation), is a framework for writing and controlling data streaming applications on remote IoT devices.

In this talk, we will discuss the basic concepts of data streaming, explore some of the use cases behind Edgent, and compare Edgent to its other streaming counterparts.
