We are happy to see such a great demand to our community and it gives us bigger motivation to make these event even bigger and better. Looking forward to see you next month!

Our Products of Things meetup on Sunday, August 28, will deal with the challenges of creating products in the IoT domain and its enablers: robotics, AR/VR, 3D printing, drones and many more. This is more a 'how to think about products' meetup than 'how to templates'.

We have two insightful talks lined up for this meetup, with the great:

Odi Dahan (https://www.linkedin.com/in/odidahan?authType=NAME_SEARCH&authToken=550o&locale=en_US&trk=tyah&trkInfo=clickedVertical%3Amynetwork%2CclickedEntityId%3A10082918%2CauthType%3ANAME_SEARCH%2Cidx%3A1-1-1%2CtarId%3A1470859320267%2Ctas%3AOdi%20Dahan), Founder & CEO @GreenIQ (http://greeniq.co/) with his talk: “Bridging the gap between prototypes and production”

Product management is a process with thousands of big and small decisions. What are the considerations that need to be taken into account in the design process? Should you design your "dream-product" right away, or release it in stages? When is the sweet spot for taking your prototype to market? Is your product manufacture-able and testable? Being optimistic by nature, entrepreneurs tend to underestimate the effort that it takes to bring a product to market. This mindset is even more prominent when it comes to a product that combines hardware and software. In this talk, Odi will share his experiences and insights from the journey of bringing GreenIQ to market.

Royi Benyossef (https://www.linkedin.com/in/royiby), Developer relations manager @Samsung Next and ex- team leader @Vidmind (http://www.vidmind.com/)with his talk: "Product Architecture: What I’ve learned through trial and error"

Product architecture is the scheme by which the function of a product is allocated to physical components. The process includes building out a software and hardware product, while simultaneously conducting market research, receiving customer feedback, and developing the hardware, must be an informed and strategic process.In his session Royi will discuss the various architectures that were required for his team to develop in order to achieve different, yet optimal product versions for the Vidmind (http://www.vidmind.com/)Vidmind’s product. Through each product version, Royi will cover where they went wrong and elaborate on what the company did to resolve these challenges in the next version and of course the outcome of each change that was implemented.

18:30 Mingling and munching
19:00 Odi will share from his experience
