Andy Carle



Andy Carle’s top focus within the Kinoma group at Marvell is new product development and user experience design. He taps his strongly user centered design philosophy to invent new products that solve authentic user needs. As part of this responsibility, he heads prototype engineering, building the 'first draft' of new, experimental applications and experiences. Dr. Carle also addresses the empirical aspects of product design by running rigorous user studies for Kinoma. He brings computer science closer to the social sciences.

Mind the Gap: JavaScript for IoT, from Concept to Production

Room: N-124 | Time: 11:10am - 11:30am

The gap between strong concept and final IoT product is enormous. Critical to the endeavor are tools that help you quickly create dynamic prototypes, and methods for user-driven rapid product iteration. They have very real impacts on your competitiveness in the evolving IoT marketplace.
At the start, carefully choose the platform that can take you straight through the steps of Software Simulation, Hardware Simulation, Prototyping Hardware, and (finally) Custom Hardware. And one that will enable you to iterate more at every step along the path to manufactured IoT product.
We are preaching the religion of JavaScript for IoT development. You need your IoT product to interface with users, sensors, services, and other IoT devices in an efficient, consistent, and extensible way. We developed a new way to use JavaScript for IoT, and we’re running it on a new class of devices.
Necessity is the mother of invention. We developed a new way to use JavaScript for IoT out of the hard lessons learned while creating Kinoma Create, a whole new type of IoT product design tool.
Join this session to get inspired by prototyping and design iteration, and to learn how JavaScript is taking its rightful place as a framework for IoT product development.
