The LJC is a sponsor and co-organiser of the Devoxx UK conference.

Join us for the Devoxx UK Party on Thursday, June 12th. There’s a heap of cool stuff going on, with BOF sessions, an Exhibition of tech projects, and an IoT Hack. Or you could just come along, meet up with a heap of the main conference attendees, and have a beer, courtesy of our Friends at Atlassian.

Chill out, have some fun, do some hacking, play with the exhibitor toys and take in the vibe.

Hack:

Create the Internet of Things! An IoT Hack, with IBM

As humans, we combine 5 highly tuned senses to make sense of the world around us. With IoT, we’re beginning to translate this skill to machines. A sensor temperature can tell you why a room's getting hotter. But why is it getting hotter? Combine a motion sensor and a microphone and we start to understand more - is it nature, or is the room filling with people?

In this hack event, IBM provide teams (3-6 people) with a kit of 30+ different sensors to see what information can be derived when combining basic data into something more meaningful.

The challenge is to figure out the most innovative combination of sensors to make sense of the world around you.

Your team can use as many of the 30 sensors as you want Sensors plug into Arduinos Software to get sensor data and display it on a web page is provided 2+ hours to create your project Each team has 3 minutes to present a prototype of their IoT setup

The winning team will be selected by an award-winning panel of Devoxians.

Prizes

Arduino Kits and 37 sensors to keep you busy back home.
