Intel Software Innovator Program | IoT Developer Show | Intel Software


Hello. I’m Martin Kronberg, and this
is the IOT developer show. We have a little bit of
a different show for you guys today. In this episode,
we’re going to talk with Kim Karalekas, a program
manager here at Intel. And she’s going to discuss the
IOT track of the Intel software innovator program,
and how you can be part of this select
group of developers. Kim, thank you so much
for joining us today. Thanks for having me. So what do you do here at Intel? I’ve been within
Intel since 2015, and I’m a program manager. And I program manage the IOT
track of the innovator program. Well do you want to tell us more
about the innovative program? Sure. So the innovative program
is a trusted group of professional developers,
and they volunteer their time to develop IOT work,
and present their work to developer communities. And so what sorts of
things do they contribute? So there are a lot
of different things that innovators participate in. For example,
innovators participate as featured presenters
at industry events, at conferences, and meet UPS. They lead in support commercials
focus workshops, hackathon, and meet ups in their own
respective communities. They generate content via things
like blog posts and videos. They also build
cutting edge demos using Intel IOT technology. Very cool. Well do they also get a chance
to present any of their work, perhaps at prestigious
industry events? Yes. So historically the innovators
have had many opportunities to do that. For example, they’ve been at
conferences such as the Intel Developer Forum,
the Intel Innovator summet, embedded world,
and the global IOT detfast. Well those sound like some
really great events to attend. But it sounds like the
innovators are putting in a lot of volunteer time. So what kind of
benefits and rewards can they expect from Intel? So there’s a lot of
benefits to the program. For example, they get really
access to Intel technology. They have opportunities to
attend industry conferences. They also have access
to Intel experts, such as engineers
and management. And they also have
the opportunity to be part of a like
minded community, and to also establish their
name in the IOT field. So what kinds of technologies
do they get early access to? So it’s always
changing, but last year, for example innovators were
able to get their hands on the latest hardware. And also develop our
kits before they are made available to the public. Well that sounds like
a really great way to get a head start on
developing on new technologies. So what would make a good fit,
do you think, for the program? Some of the things that we
look for in an Intel innovator are highly skilled
developers who are active and
passionate about IOT and IOT technology
and the IOT community. Were looking for those who
attend events and conferences. Those who create
content and build demos using Intel technology. And also people who
are enthusiastic, and who have a desire
to regularly engage with developer communities. OK. Well it sounds like
you guys are looking for a pretty broad range
of people for this program, both in terms of
technical development, as well as community engagement. Yes. So the great thing about
the innovator program is it’s not a one
size fits all program. And some innovators like to
do things like run workshops or go to events. Where others are more interested
in doing demos and having meet up groups. Where can people go to learn
more about this program? So to learn more
about the program, developers can go to the
Intel innovators sign up page, and we’ve provided a link to it. And we’d be excited to have more
innovators join the program. And what if people
want to go out and see some of the projects
that the innovators have done in the past. So we’ve provided
a link to dub mash, which is a repository
where innovators can showcase their work. Well you know this sounds like
a really great opportunity for developers that both want
to increase their development skills, as well as engage with
the IOT developer community as a whole. Kim, thank you so
much for coming here to talk us about this
really great program. Thanks for having me. Before signing off, I
had a quick announcement. My colleague Gail Homeland,
who is an Intel evangelist, is leading an industrial IOT
developer webinar series. Join on March 6th or
April 10 for this webinar tailored for industrial IOT
developers and engineers. And that’s all for the IOT
developers show for today. Don’t forget to visit
the links provided to learn more about the
Intel IOT innovator program. Like and subscribe. And thank you very
much for watching.
