Web Services Track at BuilConn
We will have speakers from the many areas where Web Services is being used, ranging from the oBIX and ASHRAE initiatives to applications available from Echelon, Gridlogix and others.
Sinclair: Tell me about the Web Services track at BuilConn.
Huneycutt: The objective of the Tuesday track is to provide BuilConn attendees with an update on Web Services and its use in building systems, there has been a great deal of development and implementation activities since last year’s BuilConn.
Sinclair: The morning is focused on an update on initiatives.
Huneycutt: Yes Ken, we will have speakers from the many areas where Web Services is being used, ranging from the oBIX and ASHRAE initiatives to applications available from Echelon, Gridlogix and others. We will also hear from a user of Web Services in a BAS application as well as a perspective from Microsoft on the bigger picture of Web Services developments.
Sinclair: The afternoon session “Show & Tell” sounds very interesting, tell me more.
Huneycutt: We wanted to make the afternoon very much an interactive session, so we have invited a number of vendors of systems, devices, middleware and applications to show the audience what they are doing with Web Services. This will be structured as a live demo of technology from the diverse areas where Web Services are adding value to building systems.
Sinclair: And you will be at hand to put these into perspective, right?
Huneycutt: I would say lend a hand, but yes that is my responsibility as a track leader.
Sinclair: Will the audience have a chance to ask questions?
Huneycutt: Yes, we are dedicating a large portion of the time for Q&A at the end of the afternoon session; the audience is invited to pose questions to the Show & Tell participants about how certain applications would benefit from using Web Services.
Sinclair: I can’t wait to see this
Huneycutt: I agree Ken, it should be a very interesting view of how powerful Web Services is going to be in building systems.
