Citrix Summit is quickly approaching!

Chris Rogers and I are delivering a talk at Summit on Monday evening entitled “Enabling Sales and Service using the Citrix Octoblu IoT Framework.” Our plan is to build an Internet of Things automation in front of the audience using Octoblu’s drag and drop designer.

Since everyone will be wearing an NFC-enabled name-tag or badge at the conference, we thought it’d be cool to demonstrate how simple it would be to automate conference rooms or send out tweets, emails, or text messages as attendees enter the room. This concept would be perfect for tracking visitors to your demo booth or follow-up sales discussions simply by scanning a badge.

Here’s a quick video to demonstrate our idea!
