What we'll do

We are excited to present a talk on The Internet of Things at August's Tech on Toast!

Get a free breakfast, hear some of Nottingham's brightest share their ideas and projects and socialise with the other members of the local tech community, all before you start your day.

Tech on Toast is free and there are no tickets required.

We'll be serving a range of free breakfast options thanks to our sponsors Esendex and Rebel Recruitment.

Tech on Toast takes place in a relaxed environment and all are welcome, regardless of technical background.


- Learning IoT With Nothing But Your Laptop -
by Pete Gallagher

Although the cost of IoT hardware has reduced dramatically over the last few years, you still need to choose the right IoT option, figure out what accessories it needs, order it all from Amazon and wait for it to arrive. By that point, you’ve moved on to something else entirely, so it sits in a cupboard drawer for a year and a half before you get back around to thinking about it…. Then you realise that you need some components and wires… Back in the drawer it goes!

With the advent of HTML 5, so comes the ability to simulate a lot of IoT Kit right there in your web browser. Pete Gallagher will take you through a few online simulators for IoT technology, which will give you a head start into the world of IoT. This way you can forgo all the procrastinating, and get to (virtually) creating!
