This silversmithing class is a good second class after learning to make a simple band ring. In this class we introduce new tools for setting stones in a silver bezel.

We will design and solder together a combination of silver wire and bezel(s) to create settings for turquoise cabochons. Other colors of Cabochons will also be available if turquoise isn't your thing.

This class has more soldering involved than our other jewelry classes and is a great opportunity to practice this essential skill.

All materials are included.
Ages: 15-115
Price $110

Please register at the link below. (Must be registered to attend): https://iotslam.com/session/decentralized-identity-for-the-internet-of-things/

As the world transforms to digital, companies try to stay relevant while balancing demands for sustainability and social responsibility. Effective, efficient, and secure operations are critical.

To achieve the agility needed to succeed in an increasingly connected world, many organizations are turning to IoT to extend processing boundaries, allow for autonomous interactions, and power decisions with more data.

The ability to trust the identity of IoT devices is crucial. If a device is compromised or impersonated, decisions made on associated data can't be trusted; results can be catastrophic. Certificates and keys are options, but can be complex to manage and maintain. What other options are emerging? How can trust be built into an IoT device network? Join this session to hear about work in the area of blockchain, emerging decentralized identity, and how it could be applied.

Speaker: Nelson Petracek, Global CTO, TIBCO Software
