What we're about

Meetup dedicated to creative, advanced and human-centered Internet-of-Things, sensor(networks), electronics/hardware. We get together twice a month to share knowledge, handson, interests and human networks.

The first Wednesday of the month, at the Sensemakers Lab session we do hands-on Internet-of-Things, with Arduino, RaspberryPi, Microbit, etc. You can do your own projects, learn from zero or participate in one of the projects related to waterquality, irrigation, airquality and sound (starting Feb. 2019)
This meetup is hosted at the Public Library (Oba) where we can use their 3Dprinters and lasercutters for prototyping & experimenting.

The third Wednesday of the month we discuss and listen to presentations on Internet-of-Things and related subjects (networks, sensors, new startups, security, AI, blockchain). Feel free to contact Manon if you want to suggest a speaker or share a topic yourself!
