IoT Info Session: Build a Flood Tracker
In lieu of our normal hacknight, we'll be hosting an info session in lead up to Saturday's tracking device buildout day. Join Code for Miami and Moonlighter for an info session on the Internet of Things (IoT) and what's needed to build your own device. This is the first of a series of events focused on community-built devices to track shifting water levels in our local canals, waterways, street corners, and backyards! In this session, you can expect to: • Learn about instances of flooding and changing water levels throughout South Florida as a result of sea level rise and King Tide • What's needed to build your device • The first steps to building a water tracker • Start to form teams of 2-4 people to build your device (each device requires someone to be able to build it, program it, and test it out) • Dinner will be provided In the second part of this event on Saturday, October 27th from 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm, you'll get: • A quick tour of Moonlighter and the tools being used, and get set up at your workstation • Begin building your water-level tracking devices • Hands-on help from the Code for Miami and Moonlighter teams • Food will be provided. -------------------------------- Space will be available for those who wish to work on other projects. Bring a laptop; beginners are always welcome! You can contribute to an existing Code for Miami Project (see our projects at http://codefor.miami/projects ) or come share your idea, and maybe start a new collaboration. We ask that participants at Code for Miami events follow our Code of Conduct (https://github.com/Code-for-Miami/codeofconduct) to ensure that our group is a safe and welcoming space.
