From Mice to Dinosaurs, Master Inventor Andy Stanford-Clark Finds Practical Uses for IoT Lauren Walters Thu, 11/01/2018 - 14:02
At Inductive Automation, we’re always excited when we get to work with innovative thinkers. It was a thrill to host one such figure, Andy Stanford-Clark of IBM, for a talk called “Andy Explains the Internet of Things — and Mousetraps.” The talk was sponsored by Inductive Automation and presented on September 20th at the Harris Center in Folsom, California, where ICC 2018 had concluded the previous day. A crowd of well over 300 people, including many ICC attendees, joined IA for an evening of inspiration, conversation, and Internet of Things (IoT) innovation with one of the leading minds in the industry.

ICC 2018: Community, Collaboration, and a Keynote You Can’t Miss Doug Dudley Thu, 07/19/2018 - 10:39
California summer is in full swing around Inductive Automation’s Folsom office, but our minds are focused on fall. Why, you ask? We’re deep into preparations for our annual gathering: the Ignition Community Conference. When we started planning our first ICC back in 2013, we could only hope that it would turn into the amazing event it is today; yet every year there are more attendees, more expert speakers, and more valuable tools being shared throughout our community. Many thought leaders from the industrial automation community will be presenting over the course of the three-day event, from a variety of industry backgrounds, with stories and expertise you can’t find anywhere else.
HMI Extreme Makeover: Customizing a Navigation System for Your Industrial Interface Ray Sensenbach Mon, 07/09/2018 - 14:39
A makeover story is easy to spotlight because it is so visual: we can see the “before and after.” But what about when the transformation happens beneath the surface? In our last post, we discussed HMI design makeovers, focusing on the external factors that make for great industrial interface design. This time, we’re diving deeper into the backbone of HMI screens: the navigation and wayfinding.

A lot of our Ignition community members have shown interest in the subject, and our Co-Directors of Sales Engineering Travis Cox and Kevin McClusky, and Senior Software Engineer Kathy Applebaum, shared some of their collective knowledge about ML on a recent "Design Like a Pro" webinar.
