YottaDB at All Things Open 2022
All Things Open 2022 was the tenth year of the open source technology conference. YottaDB returned with an in-person booth to ATO after three years.
We demonstrated YottaDB in a simulated Internet of Things application. We had temperature, motion, carbon dioxide and volatile organic compound sensors connected to a Raspberry Pi. The motion sensor was connected to a red LED. Data was recorded locally, and replicated in real-time to another Raspberry Pi, the one with a small touch-sensitive display at the front of the table. That display showed the YottaDB GUI (under development, and current field test grade software), including the key-value nodes of the data. That Raspberry Pi also ran Octo, and on a laptop we demonstrated a real-time Excel graph of the data, which it accessed using ODBC.
