We'll be back in July. With a talk from Alan McGaughey talking about using JavaScript to build IoT devices.

We'll have free pizza thanks to our sponsors Banlaw and Saphi.

Yes, you can use JavaScript on a "thing" (IoT device) and make it useful (maybe).

Live demonstration on how to get a thing (tiny WiFi-enabled board that runs JavaScript code) connected to the world and attempt to do something that will change the world (at least turn a LED on/off or something).

About the speaker:

Alan McGaughey started working at Industrial Electronics in 1982 with 8 bit microprocessors, spent 10 years looking after the largest Mainframes in the country, followed by building and running a SaaS offering for the past 15 years. "Yep, I have grey hair..."

Today, it is a 360 degree moment, working with microprocessors connected to some of the largest compute and SaaS offerings on the planet. Who would have thunk it could be done with a total cost of a few dollars.
