๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿ“ถ Let's Play With (Web) Bluetooth! ๐Ÿค–โŒš๐Ÿ’ป

Details

Let's meet for hands-on experimentation on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices!

The Thingy:52 is sensor-packed Bluetooth Low Energy device that enables quick experimentation and prototyping of IoT solutions. We'll bring a bunch of these devices and you'll be able to play with them and explore them.

We will start with a quick demonstration of the Thingy:52 devices - their sensors and how to use a free app called "nRF Connect" for connecting and experimenting with the devices.

After that - hacking time starts! You can work on your own, connect to them with your mobile phone and write macros, and even create a small Web Bluetooth application that connects to the device and controls it. We will provide an example to get you up and running quickly!

Bringing your laptop is recommended, especially if you want to experiment with Web Bluetooth.

If you want to learn more about the Thingy:52 and Bluetooth Low Energy, check out these talks from our BLE event earlier this year:

Here are some of the hardware goodies you'll find on the Thingy:52
* RGB Led
* Tactile Push Button
* Color sensor
* 9-axis Motion tracking sensor: accelerometer, gyroscope and compass
* Low-power accelerometer
* Digital Microphone
* Speaker
* Gas (air quality) sensor
* Humidity and temperature sensor
* Pressure & Altitude sensor
* NFC

Thanks HodashDev and HubStair for hosting us this time! ๐Ÿ™

Note: This is a small, informal event, and the goal is to experiment and learn. Please be respectful to the other attendees, keep the atmosphere friendly and encouraging, and only RSVP if you are absolutely sure you can make it, as we have very limited spots.

Let's have some great time together ๐Ÿ˜
