Hey everyone! I’m off to Birmingham today (Tuesday 17th September) to talk at HydraHack in Birmingham on a great topic: The Internet of Things.
The Internet of Things is an initiative to take the Internet we know and love and turn it into something more than just documents. The Internet is becoming embedded into all kinds of devices and with the proliferation of low cost devices like the Raspberry Pi, the Arduino and the Tessel, it’s becoming easier than ever to build interesting hacks linked to the Internet that allow you to do cool stuff marrying both software and hardware together.
We at Pusher are, of course, very excited about this as it’s a great use case for our platform! Our community has contributed a number of great Client Libraries for just about any language, which you can use to send messages between devices in real time. I’ll be talking about how you can use our service to harness the power of real-time in your IoT project.
HydraHack is held at the Vertu Bar in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, and brings the Birmingham dev community together once every quarter to talk about interesting trends and technologies for web developers. It looks like a great event, and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to join the HydraHack crew on Tuesday to meet Birmingham’s hackers.
We kick things off at 6pm and finish at around 8pm. I’ll be around all evening, so please don’t hesitate to come and have a chat about your project or our platform!
