Everyone loves the Internet of things.

Small board computers, robotics, the pure physics of physical computing is almost intoxicating.

This evening we have three experts in the field of IoT, and possibly a special speaker with a few surprises.

It will be enjoyable and fun!

We have variety, coding, Rust, PCBs and real robots!
