"I'm looking forward to discussing the impact that interactive music can have in the classroom at this year's TCEA Convention in Austin," said Mary Jo Barry, Beamz Senior Marketing Manager. "This five-day convention brings together educators from across the state of Texas to inspire innovative teaching and learning. It's a great place to showcase how interactive music can help kids of all ages get the sensory input they need. Through Beamz we are able to deliver an exciting approach to learning, all while building self-esteem and independence."
Beamz has become an important device for people of all abilities because music is such an excellent vehicle to teach learning concepts and achieve developmental milestones.

Adaptive peripherals such as switches and keyboards, as well as interactive whiteboards and touch screen devices can be used to provide just the right amount of support for every learner or therapy recipient.
"Beamz has been successfully used in schools, therapy facilities, in homes and in hospitals across the nation," said Charlie Mollo, CEO of Beamz Interactive. "At TCEA we have a tremendous opportunity to present to hundreds of teachers and educators about the benefits of interactive music. With a growing music library, dozens of peripherals and near limitless ways the device can be used in a classroom, Beamz is a wonderful way to engage children in the world of music and help them explore their creativity through interactive learning."

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...

The increasing popularity of the Internet of Things necessitates that our physical and cognitive relationship with wearable technology will change rapidly in the near future.

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
