Context for MQTT with the Web of Things

The data produced by the MQTT devices around us is highly valuable. We build systems to act on the data and the knowledge, and for that we need context about the data. Indeed, it is important to know whether the temperature data belongs to sensor in my smart home, an industrial furnace or a connected vehicle’s under the hood compartment.

In this talk, Ege will show how the Web of Things standards at the W3C bring context to the MQTT data around us without changing the data itself, even reducing the payload size if you want to. Additionally, you will get to see how we can onboard non-MQTT devices into MQTT systems without losing any meaning of the interactions of the device.

This will not be just a talk; you will get to see live code and interactions over an MQTT broker. So, make sure to have your MQTT clients ready!
