Tonight's Presentation Summary:

The Internet of Things (IoT) is fundamentally changing how we interact with the digital world. In this talk, we’ll explore the implementation of live examples which bridge the gap between the physical and digital world using code: asking Alexa for information on conference sessions; displaying API data on an Arduino-powered display; using code to control LEDs on a Raspberry Pi to monitor application uptime; and connecting IR sensors to Slack to see whether a conference room is in use.

Evening Schedule:

• 6:30pm - Pizza will be served thanks to One for All Events! Hang out and chat!
• 7:00pm - We will begin the evening presentation.
• 8:30pm - Time to close up and leave. (Hard Limit)
• (later) - Join fellow attendees at JoJo's Tap House down the street to continue the conversation!
