Interactive Workshop and Tech Talks 
31st May 2016 Cardiff

An IoT (Internet of Things) based workshop exploring how your Things can connect to the cloud and what you can do with the cloud when you are connected.

Everyone is welcome even if you have a basic knowledge of programming, as it will be used NodeRed which is a visual tool for wiring the Internet of Things. 

Attendees will need to bring a laptop to connect to a usb powered ESP8266 serial WIFI Witty cloud Development Board which can be programmed via the Arduino IDE


As we have a limited amount of these devices attendees are welcome to bring their own, it will be used IFTTT examples which anyone can build to connect devices in their homes etc. Really no excuses for not starting ESP8266 IoT projects.

Adorable Cute Kittens Pictures

We have collected adorable cute pictures of kittens for the enjoyment of our visitors and readers. A kitten (also known as a kitty or kitty cat) is a juvenile cat. After being born, kittens are totally dependent on their mother for survival and do not normally open their eyes until after seven to ten days.

After about two weeks, kittens quickly develop and begin to explore the world outside the nest. After a further three to four weeks, they begin to eat solid food and grow adult teeth. Domestic kittens are highly social animals and enjoy human companionship. Source.

Whether your business is well-established or you’re just starting out, here are a few reasons why you cannot be without a mobile app in 2015.
Mobile apps are 24/7
Imagine a world where you can guarantee top class customer service around the clock, without having to rely on cumbersome call centres. Of course, this is not to discount the obvious benefits of human contact, but the advantages of a mobile app are that a customer can log on at a time that is co…
