Altia, a world leader in the development of tools for "graphical user interface" design (GUI), have announced that they will be presenting at The UK Device Developers' Conference 2016. www.device-developer-conference.co.uk

Julian Coates, Northern Europe Business Manager at Altia, will discuss how 'graphical user interface' development will be the key to harnessing the power of IoT, and how it can be achieved.

"The Internet of Things is exploding, and for a variety of reasons that we'll explore in this discussion," said Julian Coates. "The real question is how do we make the IoT useful within the context of everyday life?

It is estimated that 4 billion devices connected to the IoT will need a GUI, and this is what I'll be discussing. How developers can meet this demand and harness the power of the IoT into a simple, sleek, usable GUI, and how it can be achieved affordably."

The UK Device Developers' Conference 2016 is an event for engineers and software developers working in the development of intelligent systems and devices, taking place near Cambridge on the 27th and 28th April. The conference will be co-located with H/WExpo, a conference for hardware developers. www.hardware-developer-expo.co.uk

“We are very pleased to have the expertise of Altia at the Conference once again,” said Richard Blackburn, Conference Manager. GUI development is a very part of most embedded systems and the combination of graphical aesthetics and low-level code can make it particularly challenging. I feel sure developers will be keen to learn about what new technology is now available to help them in this aspect of their work.”

Altia will also be presenting a full-day workshop at the Device Developers’ Conference. Entitled “Embedded GUIs - the model-based engineering development cycle from graphics to on-target coding”, developers will experience model-based GUI development hands-on, covering the complete cycle from graphics-importation, building and editing the GUI simulation-model, to generating and running the code on targets ranging from low-cost microcontrollers with no RTOS and minimal memory, to embedded platforms, to standard PC-level Windows applications-platforms for early-stage design-validation.
