Our speaker this month will be Linda Nichols.
Linda is going to talk about her mischievous cat problem and how a proposed solution evolved into a cloud-based kitty detection system. She will show her hybrid NodeBot/IoT project and how it works seamlessly with some of the new features of Amazon Web Services. She'll include a brief summary of AWS Lambda, IoT, SNS, Rekognition and how to get started as a beginner in the cloud.
