Are you planning to build your own IoT project for fun or for profit?
This meeting will help our meetup members get up to speed with Arduino, the most popular open source hardware platform for physical computing and DIY IoT projects.
Thomas Brühlmann (http://webmeister.ch/), the author of the popular German Arduino book „Arduino Praxiseinstieg (http://arduino-praxis.ch/das-buch/)“ will take us on a tour of the Arduino platform. He'll cover:
