IoT enthusiasts unite!  

IoT Hessen is Frankfurt's first IoT meetup. It is open to all those who would like to take part in the development of the Internet of Things – be it as an active participant, as an observer or as a participant-observer. In regular evening events, we explore this new, exciting industry from different angles and in different formats: lectures, hackathons, discussions, and more. Currently our events take place in Frankfurt, but a long-term goal of this group is to organize meetups in other Hessian cities as well: Darmstadt, Wiesbaden, Kassel etc.

Hype, engine of economic growth, innovation driver, technical gimmick: The Internet of Things (IoT) means something different to everyone. But all of us observe the proliferation of connected, intelligent devices and everyday objects. Since Kevin Ashton coined the term "Internet of Things" in 1999, the utopia that computers, sensors and actuators automatically exchange data and control one another has been becoming real, little by little. This is also evident in the ubiquity of terms such as Industry 4.0, M2M, Industrial Internet or Internet of Everything. More and more traditional enterprises discover the IoT as a fountain of youth for their business. At the same time the IoT has inspired innovative business ideas on which many young startups thrive.


IoT Hessen ist das erste IoT Meetup in Frankfurt. Es steht allen offen, die an der Entwicklung des Internet of Things teilhaben wollen – als Teilnehmer, Beobachter oder teilnehmende Beobachter. In regelmäßigen Abendveranstaltungen möchten wir diesen neuen, spannenden Industriezweig gemeinsam und interdisziplinär erkunden – in Form von Vorträgen, Hackathons, Diskussionsrunden und mehr. Derzeit finden unsere Events ausschließlich in Frankfurt statt; langfristiges Ziel ist es aber, auch in anderen hessischen Städten Meetups stattfinden zu lassen: Darmstadt, Wiesbaden, Kassel etc.

Hype, Wirtschaftsmotor, Innovationstreiber, technische Spielerei: Das Internet of Things (IoT) bedeutet für jeden etwas anderes. Aber wir alle beobachten die zunehmende Verbreitung vernetzter, intelligenter Geräte und Alltagsgegenstände in unserem Umfeld. Seit Kevin Ashton den Begriff „Internet of Things“ 1999 prägte, wird aus der einstigen Utopie, dass Computer, Sensoren und Aktoren selbständig Daten austauschen und einander steuern können, Stück für Stück Realität. Auch die Konjunktur verwandter Begriffe wie Industrie 4.0, M2M oder Internet of Everything spricht dafür. So entdecken viele Traditionsunternehmen im IoT einen Jungbrunnen, während sich junge Startups zu innovativen Geschäftsideen inspirieren lassen.
