IOT Hardware hacking with Javascript using Kinoma

What is this?
Kinoma Create is the JavaScript-powered construction kit for makers, professional product designers, and web developers with no prior hardware experience.

With Kinoma Create, you can create personal projects, consumer electronics, and Internet of Things prototypes more quickly and easily than ever before.

It's designed to be the fastest way to go from a product concept to a fully realized, Internet-connected prototype.

Why is Kinoma Create especially good at prototyping smart consumer electronics and Internet of Things devices? Because they share the need to talk to other devices, phones, and tablets, to connect to sensors in order to interact with their environment, and to talk with web services. And Kinoma Create makes all of that simple.

The problem with prototyping today
Makers and product designers typically start with a bare, single-board computer. They’re cheap, but starting with a bare board means spending more money and a lot of time — often a week or two — just getting the basics to work so you have something suitable to prototype with.

Kinoma Create is different
Kinoma Create is a new type of “plug-and-play” design tool. It comes fully assembled and ready for prototyping, and includes everything you need to start coding and seeing results fast.

What do we mean by “fast”? You’ll be at “hello world” within minutes of setup. You can connect your first sensor and display values on the screen within 30 minutes. Thanks to the software that powers Kinoma Create and the ability to talk to sensors with JavaScript, it’s as easy to read a sensor value as it is to use a variable.

At SXSW in Austin, we demonstrated fun, sophisticated projects built by makers who received their Kinoma Create just weeks before the show started.

    Could someone explain how the coworking week relates to this meetup? I don't see it listed at the eventbrite link. Thanks!
