Workshops

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

NodeBots bring JavaScript and electronics together. They're a great way to rapidly prototype IoT devices and robotics. This workshop will give you hands on experience with NodeBots in a creative context. It will include short instructional sessions, and a bunch of time to build your own NodeBot out of electronics and cardboard. No electronics experience is necessary, but some JavaScript experience might be useful.
