April Internet of Things talks at Makespace

Gordon Williams is the creator of Espruino - the world's first open source Javascript microcontroller. The Espruino was funded through a massively successful Kickstarter project with 1,692 backers giving over £100k to get it made. Unlike many a failed hardware Kickstarter, Gordon heroically shipped over four thousand boards earlier this year and will hopefully let us in on the secret of his success.

Claire Rowland is an independent UX strategist, design manager and researcher with a particular interest in experience design for the internet of things/connected devices/ubiquitous computing (whatever you want to call it!).  Previously, she was the service design manager for AlertMe.com, a connected home platform provider, and head of research at design agency Fjord.  She is writing a book for O’Reilly on UX design for the internet of things, due out at the end of 2014.

> Introduction by Mark Cheverton (@ennui2342)
