What we're about

The Brisbane Internet of Things (IoT) Interest Group aims to help newcomers to IoT understand the potential of the medium, and to help experienced practitioners stay in touch with new technologies, emerging trends and our peers in the field. The promise of the Internet of Things is to extend our reach and awareness beyond our immediate presence, to allow our buildings, vehicles and cities to become an extension of our person. Computers that inhabit our homes and workplaces are positioned to react to our unique needs in a way that mass-market consumer items cannot.

Our evening symposia begin with refreshments and a networking session, followed by 40-60 minutes of of presentations.

We also offer weekend practical sessions where you will have the opportunity to be hands on with technology, learning about techniques and technologies, and creating devices to meet each attendee's unique needs.
