Creating the Arduino Yún & the Future of the Internet of Things
January 16, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC-5
How does a company help build a powerful, internet of things enabling, Arduino board? What hot projects are being constructed using these boards that blur the hardware to software boundaries for developers, and where is the future of the Internet of Things headed?
Join us for our inaugural Commerce Factory meetup at the Lab in Miami, where Vaughn Shinall of Temboo (https://temboo.com/) will talk about these topics, and how they partnered with Arduino board creators to construct the first member of the series of boards to combine Arduino with Linux to enable an easy and powerful internet of things bridge.
Be part of the Commerce Factory launch with local Maker communities representing, lots of giveaways and raffles, and plenty of good food and drinks as you learn about the revolution in small scale hardware hacking!
