IoT Enabled Product Enhancement Roundtable coming up

I will be facilitating the IoT Enabled Product Enhancement Roundtable at the 11th Annual New Product Innovation & Development conference hosted by Frost & Sullivan. This conference takes place from January 9th - 11th, 2017 in La Jolla, California. I'm looking forward to meeting new folks, talking about tech, and learning from others in the industry while escaping from the winter of North East Ohio for a few days in San Diego.

If you are having a software or hardware Meetup in the San Diego area the week of January 9th, I would love to know about it! Reach out to me on Twitter and let me know!

About that IoT Tech Group in Chardon, OH...

Unfortunately, the organizer of the recent IoT group in Chardon will be moving. As such, the group will be closed and I will in fact NOT be speaking at it in the future.

There is an IoT Tech Group in Chardon, OH

In case you have missed it, there is an Internet of Things / Tech meetup group in Chardon Ohio that was recently created. While for me, this is a bit of a drive (no direct route from home) they are a new group and would be a great place to network and meet other folks in the area interested in the same subject matter for the Far/Near East Siders of Cleveland.

I am planning in the near future to be attending one of the meetups and possibly giving a talk or two to the members. See you there!

Also, don't forget that there is a monthly "Electro-Nerd" gathering called Charged Conversations that I usually attend on the first Thursday of each month. We have a number of regulars from diverse tech background that talk tech & electronics over a few beers at the Oak Barrel in Valley View.

CodeMash 2017 Talk Submissions

That time is upon us! Yes, CodeMash 2017 Talk Submissions are due at 11:51pm EST today. Once again, nothing like the last "responsible" moment (is that such a thing?). I turned in talk submissions once again this year, mostly centering around the "Hardware" category due to my work at LeanDog (on Embedded Devices) as well as my ongoing involvement in Contextual Electronics.

Are you planning on attending CodeMash 2017? What kind of Hardware sessions would you be interested in?

ICYMI: MQTT Security and ACL In Depth for Mosquitto talk at WindyCityThings 2016

I just wanted to let you know, in case you missed the mentions on Twitter, I gave a talk on MQTT Security and ACL In Depth for Mosquitto at the first ever WindyCityThings conference in Chicago. It was great to meet a number of the attendees from a breadth of backgrounds to talk Internet of Things! I look forward to at least attending, if not speaking there next year.

I also happen to have been recorded that day, with the video of my talk here.

ICYMI: I was the guest on the Embedded.fm podcast #134

If you are learning Embedded development, or are already versed, and don't know about the podcast Embedded.fm then you my friend are missing out! I had the honor and pleasure of being the guest on episode 134: Diet-Friendly Dog Food where I talk about my involvement in ContextualElectronics, a little about what I do at LeanDog, and learning embedded development. It was great talking to Elecia & Chris and hope to get a chance to be on the show again.

Also, if you haven't heard of The Amp Hour podcast, that is a great electrical engineering related podcast run by a good friend, Chris Gammell, and David Jones. I highly recommend it, as well as The Spark Gap podcast with Corey & Karl.

Enjoy!
