Details subject to change of course but here is a brief outline of the workshops we have lined up. In the weeks before the event we'll have everyone choose which workshop they might want to attend so we can allocate resources appropriately.
IoT Prototyping with Cardboard, NodeBots, and Google Cloud
Ubiquitous Cellular - Connect your Project Anywhere in the World
Your project shouldn't be constrained by the range of a wifi signal. This workshop will show you how to connect to Hologram.io's Global Cellular Network via a serial link. Participants will build a custom interaction between the MCU and Modem with CircuitPython and AT Commands.
Build your own internet controlled robotic arm with ESP32
In this workshop you will upload a custom firmware to the ESP32, learn how to communicate with ESP32 via wifi, use it to control a couple of servo motors, and then connect it all to some cardboard arms.
Web Connecting Hardware, Enterprises, Meet Thingy:52
Until recently, it has not been easily possible for - in particular - legacy enterprises to consider web a serious platform for production. With the introduction of Web Components, Progressive Web Apps, Web USB and Web Bluetooth, this is no longer the case. Come join us in a workshop on web connecting hardware to get hands-on experience with Web Bluetooth, Web USB and more.
Badge hacking with Bluetooth LoRa and the Web of Things
LoRa and a tiny screen for your badge . . . yeah, you get to keep it!
Hands-on with Android Things
In this workshop, you will learn everything you need to know about developing IoT applications on Android Things. Using Android Studio and a developer kit, you will see how easy it is to use the Android platform to interact with hardware in the real world, and integrate powerful libraries like TensorFlow to perform complex computing at the edge.
Daydream-ing with WebVR
This workshop with give you a foundation to explore WebVR. While we will focus on the A-Frame framework, a discussion of other frameworks and tools will be discussed. Bring your phone because we have Daydream kits for you to try.
AIY Voice Kit and Beyond!
In this workshop, we will walk through assembling the Google AIY Voice Kit and demonstrate how to get a natural language recognizer up and running and connect it to the Google Assistant. Will also show you how to add your own question and answer pairs and create some customized features.
