Intel's release of the Edison (https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot) and Galileo Gen 2 (https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot) boards has put more power into microcontroller development boards than ever before. How do the Intel boards compare with other boards on the market? What does it take to prototype an IoT project and what is the Yocto Project? You'll get an intro to all these and more at the meetup. In addition, you'll get an intro to Chain-Check, one of the winning projects from Intel's recent IoT Hackathon in Mountain View, California, performing machine learning algorithms on the boards to predict when your bicycle will need a tuneup. We'll explore where edge computing makes sense and more. Whether you're an experienced hardware hacker or a hobbyist looking to see how to join in the Internet of Things buzz, come join us!

Plus there will be a raffle for a free BASIS watch!

We're excited to have Intel Software (https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot) sponsor food and drinks for this meetup!
