July Internet of Things talks at Makespace

Hugo Fiennes is CEO and Co-founder of Electric Imp, an innovative and powerful Internet of Things-based cloud service and hardware platform that makes it simple to connect devices to the Internet.

Hugo began developing hardware and software for early ARM-based computers in the late 1980s and has been building useful and successful things ever since. After designing many MP3 players for Rio, Hugo led Apple’s hardware team through the first four generations of the groundbreaking iPhone, and was then an early advisor to Nest Labs, architecting the hardware for their first thermostat product before starting Electric Imp in 2011.

Simon Ford is part of the IoT team in ARM, and lead the mbed project that is all about establishing an open platform for enabling developers to create ARM-based IoT devices on a massive scale. The aim is to build a platform and ecosystem of open-source software and hardware building blocks that are available to a very wide professional developer audience, allowing new industries to take advantage of the huge potential IoT presents. Think embedded intelligence everywhere...


Simon is also one of the three Makespace founders, establishing what is arguably one of the most impressive community spaces in the country.

The agenda will be:

Arrive 6:45 for a 7pm start (buzz for entry after 7pm)

> Introduction by Mark Cheverton (@ennui2342)

> Simon Ford (@mookstar)

> Networking & retire to The Mill
