What do Russian spies, Father Ted, Disco Dog, enchanted swords and the creepiest billboard you’ve ever seen have to do with the Internet Of Things? We find out in this Friday’s Beers with Ideas!
The Internet of Things (IoT) has been hailed as the next Industrial Revolution; it will change the way that we interact with the physical world, and bring a wealth of new opportunities to digital businesses. In this week’s session John Shepherd — Senior Developer at Orange Bus — takes us on a jargon-busting tour of the underlying technologies, benefits and drawbacks of a world of interconnected devices. We’ll discover all there is to know about smart spaces, bluetooth LE, the Physical Web and the secret powers that have been built into every mobile phone.
There’ll be raspberry pies and bluetooth beacons to play with, and a hands-on workshop in which John promises we’ll collaboratively build “something awesome”. Perfect end to the working week, eh?
