The Built.io team was out in full force at the Integrate 2015 Conference last week, demonstrating how Built.io Flow brings the IoT and the Internet of APIs to life. In a custom built IoT Pavilion, our team showcased use cases for the Connected Arena, Connected Business, Connected Home, and Connected Vehicle with a series of hands-on, interactive demos. In addition to being called out as the most fun booth during the conference expo, the Built.io team also won the coveted award for Best Internet of Things Integration Technology for Built.io Flow.
Built.io Flow allows businesses to automate recurring tasks, eliminate manual and mundane processes and increase efficiency. One of the demos on the showfloor utilized Tropo, Twilio, Salesforce, and beacons to present a Connected Retail use-case.
The Connected Arena station boasted a full-size basketball hoop demonstration. Here's Maria Roat, CTO at U.S. Department of Transportation flawlessly making a shot on the connected hoop, which turns the connected Philips Hue lights on the backboard to purple, and shares an instant replay of her winning shot on Twitter!
Here's an instant replay of the same flow triggered by Slamson, the mascot of the Sacramento Kings:

It was no accident that Slamson made a rousing guest appearance. The NBA’s Sacramento Kings are assembling best-in-class technology in preparation of the unveiling of their new arena, billed as the most connected and smartest arena on the planet. They needed a technology platform that was both robust and nimble enough to seamlessly integrate cutting edge hardware and software components and to significantly enhance the fan experience. They chose Built.io Flow!
The Integrate Conference IoT Summit Closing Keynote featured the USDOT's Maria Roat, as well as Matt Eclavea, Sacramento Kings Vice President of Technology, and Andrew Nicholson, Sacramento Kings Senior Director of Digital – all alongside Built.io CEO Neha Sampat and COO Matthew Baier. The keynote covered how the Internet of Things will impact transportation infrastructure in the future, as well as how integration technology now sits at the center of a whole new generation of connected experiences.
We were honored to have Kin Lane host a couple of “Ask the API Evangelist” sessions at the Built.io Pavilion. Those developers lucky enough to catch Kin live were able to discuss their burning issues and gain valuable insights from one of the industry’s most esteemed authorities on APIs.
