Thing Tuesday On April 15th - JOIN US!!!

How I can use your help: Let folk know about next Tuesday night and make sure they RSVP with you.

First off many apologies for the lack of communication and the late notification. Smart Mocha is in an intense phase now and we have been working hard. That means less time for fun stuff like Thing Tuesday, but still will eek out time. If you have the bandwidth, get involved and help me with the program.

We will have Pizza! Thank you to Keli Foley at Symmetry - they are suppliers of parts and modules for IoT and they have been an awesome supporter of local initiatives in the space. Find her on linkedin and reach out if you need parts and modules for your IoT / M2M projects -

Now our speakers!

Just Confirmed! - George Zamanakos, CEO of Sweet Spot Diabetes

George has recently been appointed the CEO of Portland startup Sweet Spot Diabetes, which was acquired a few years ago by Dexcom. George will talk about his views and passions around IoT and medical devices and the data they generate.

Dennis Veatch - Industrial Design and IoT

Dennis is an experienced and well known local industrial designer. He has worked on some great local and national products and in this short talk he will share with us his views on manufacture, design and IoT.

Sce Pike - New IoT Startup / Awesome Team

Sce (pronounced SAY) is the CEO of one of the hottest IoT startup's in town at the moment, in this very short session she'll be casting her net out with Thing Tuesday to recruit new team members. Come hear, meet and chat.

Keli Foley - How Symmetry can help your IoT ideas happen

All in all a good session with some good thinking material. And of course, you, the Thing Tuesday group who support and make the connections happen.

All the best,

    Thanks everyone for listening and to all those that I spoke with afterwards that I gave my card to, please contact me at /sce at iotashome dot com/. My citizen email gets 100s of emails and I may have missed yours. Thanks and I can't wait to come back and talk about IOTAS closer to launch.

    Man - I am super bummed that I missed out. I ended up having a late night at work. :(

    Are there recordings of the talks at all, or perhaps slides? I was really interested in what people had to talk about tonight.

    I came across this today - thought some Java developers into IoT may find it of interest (i.e. prizes):

      You want to do a quick talk and introduce yourself? It can be the next one. That kind of work is *fascinating*, educational and inspirational....

      Next one? When is that? Let's try to chat a bit on Tuesday then. Thanks for asking :)
