MIAMI, Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- (Midnite Communications) – Inspire and Develop Artists (IDA Program), which offers aspiring artists the opportunity of a lifetime, is hosting their weeklong boot camp in South Beach from November 25Dec 1. The seven (7) day boot camp for artists is a chance to work with the best of the best in the music industry. Typically these producers and songwriters only work with artists that have years of experience and are signed to a music label and have a few records under their belt.

The course, led by pop superstar Jon Secada, music production giants Rudy Perez, Mark Hudson and David Frangioni includes classes for vocal coaching, songwriting, recording, mixing, studio technology, rehearsals, live performances, stage presence, music business guest speakers and more. Class sizes are kept intentionally small to provide an intimate learning experience, thus space is limited.

Hopeful participants will work one-on-one with the mentors along with a group of renowned industry experts including modeling guru, Michele Pommier and fashion editor, Jenny Perez amongst other support staff to embrace every aspect of the industry. The experience and knowledge this program offers is a golden opportunity for any aspiring artist. At the end of the weeklong program, each attendee will have the knowledge they will need to compete in this industry, along with the image building, choreography training, business fundamentals and their own professionally recorded single to help launch their careers.

"I've mentored young talent my entire career. It's a way of giving back that's important to me and being an educator is something I truly enjoy. The best part about IDA as a mentor is that I get to join a superstar team of industry giants whose sole focus is in inspiring and developing music's next generation. I feel honored to be a part of IDA and I'm very excited to meet and work with all of its participants," commented Jon Secada.

"I want to put you through that boot camp with all the great mentors and instructors at IDA and I want you to come out a Superstar at the other end! It's going to change your life," affirms Rudy Perez. "I want to find great future artists, develop and mentor them to their full potential here at IDA. This is what my passion is right now; I think that's going to be my greatest legacy."

"IDA was born in part from our experiences in being trained and understanding how powerful a day in the music industry can be and how it can change the rest of your life. Now, we are offering several days to learn from a team comprised of the best," said, David Frangioni.

"I've known David and Rudy for many, many years, but the time is now for us to finally work together and bring IDA to the artists of tomorrow. If your dream is to have a career in music or the entertainment business, then IDA will take you to the next level," added Mark Hudson.

Jon Secada, Rudy Perez, Mark Hudson and David Frangioni are available for interviews through November 24th. For interview requests please contact Jennifer Diliz directly at 305-206-4040 or via email at [email protected] .

"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their back-end AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT – especially in the connected home and office.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected.

Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
