Guest Speaker: Christopher Hunt Founder/CTO, Titan Class

Listen on Soundcloud

Today we sit down with Christopher Hunt (Twitter: @huntchr), former Lightbender and now the founder/CTO of an Australian IoT startup called Titan Class. Commissioned by Cisco Systems, Titan Class makes Farmify, a field-based digital twin IoT solution designed using Akka Streams that gathers and analyzes various sensor metrics to enable intelligent farming.
