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.
