  • Samsara HQ - San Francisco, CA 350 Rhode Island St, Suite 400S San Francisco, CA, 94103 United States (map)


The Internet of Things (IoT) market is expected to grow from USD 170 billion in 2017 to USD 560 billion by 2022. In this ever growing realm of IoT the key challenges are security and large scale scaling of connected systems and solutions. Come learn from PMs at the fastest-growing enterprise IoT startup, Samsara, on how they've scaled a vast sensor system to deal with today's complicated fleet management challenges. Also on the panel is renowned lecturer on IoT from Stanford University, Daniel Elizalde and a PM from Google Assistant. They'll be covering questions such as: How do we stay on top of this tremendous growth? What product growth strategies should we use for IoT products? We'll conclude this event with our signature AWIP product case and hands-on workshop.
