Okay Portland Thingsters - we have the next meetup scheduled for June 17th in the evening.
WE HAVE A PIZZA SPONSOR!!! - Thank you to Troy Kent at Pacific Crest Securities... Make sure you meet Kent, he's super connected..... and his firm has a vision on what impacts IoT will make.
UPDATE: Just added two more quick fire speakers:
MQTT: A Protocol for IoT - Gerald Aden
I want the community to start to discuss the merits of the much vaunted MQTT and to also start looking at COAP as the "lingua franca" for IoT - pro's, con's and realities. Gerald has kindly offered to kick us off on the path of discussion....
Rigado: About us, Thing Tuesday Series Sponsor and Recruiting!!!! - Justin Rigling
Justin will talk about Rigado, who they are recruiting ( hopefully you) and what they will be doing going forward as the Thing Tuesday Charter Sponsor - in short, sharing their knowledge with us on making physical products so we all can... :-)
Data - The Canvas For IoT - John Brown
Anyone in the tech industry has struggled with getting data to do what it's supposed to, but what if there was an avenue where the data only did what you wanted it to do? Enter the community art project where you pull in data with no relation to anything, so whatever you make is exactly the reason that data exists. I'll show you how we can make music, sculptures, websites, and robots that all share the same seed of creation.
Open Beacon, Open Source meet BTLE - Steven Osborn, Urban Airship and representative from Nordic Semiconductor
BTLE and iBeacons will be huge. How exactly is yet to be seen, but one thing that will fuel that future is open hardware. Steven Osborn will present his visions for Open Hardware in the BTLE space and the launch of their project.
John Todd and his Hacks - Part 1
If it moves, John Todd has hacked it :-) John is a local technical treasure and has agreed to present his work in a series of short talks about how he has harnessed off the self technologies to create connected intelligent systems at his home in Oregon.
All the best,
