Connect BuzzConf with your creativity set to 11. Learn how to make and deploy wirelessly connected sensors (input), actuators (output), robots and even your tent to the network.
On the Friday evening, we’ll be having an informal session where we instrument the camp. If you’ve got some IoT devices, bring them along and let’s connect the camp to see what data we can create and what things we can activate based on them.
On the Saturday we’ll be having a focussed, 2 hour workshop where you can come along and learn much more. If you’re an absolute beginner we’ll show you how the NodeBots stack works and then get you stuck into building your first network connected thing that can create or consume data from the BuzzConf Internet of Tents. If you’re keen to learn we’ll have a learn to solder bench set up where you can build a badge to show off your soldering skills.
After the formal session completes, for those that are interested, we’ll continue to have a hacking / making session where you can work on things alongside or with our experts.
Over the evening and on Sunday morning the aim is to see what useful or silly things people can create when we have a plethora or network connected sensors and actuators to play with in a space.
We’ll wind up our Internet of Tents fun on Sunday afternoon with a show and tell / science fair session where participants can show off the things they’ve created.
