Digital signs are a completely different creature than standard websites, mobile applications, or really just about anything else you might be building. In particular, delivery mechanisms for digital signage must be perfectly engineered to ensure fast, accurate, and consistent data flow.
This session will be focused on making a data pipeline for digital signage successful. We will discuss available technologies to build a pipeline, testing methodologies, and how to include Drupal in this pipeline.

Anyone involved in a current digital signage project
Powering digital experiences beyond websites; specifically digital signage
Evaluating delivery mechanisms like REST and IoT
