Connected: A Combined SFIoT, SF Hardware, and Sensored (SF) Meetup

San Francisco is becoming a hub for hardware startups thanks to our amazing local community of developers, designers, entrepreneurs, and data scientists that meet regularly to learn and connect from each other about prototyping, designing, manufacturing and creating viable products and companies.

This event will bring together the largest SF meetups in this space, including the SFIoT, SF Hardware, and Sensored (SF) meetups. You'll hear talks by some of the speakers from the upcoming O'Reilly Solid conference like Dan Saffer, Mike Kuniavsky, Rachel Kalmar, and Jon Bruner, and see product demos from local Bay Area startups who are making their hardware visions a reality like August, Electric Imp, CellScope, and Whistle.

We will also be giving away passes to Solid and announcing a special discount code.

Hope to see you there!

Speakers

Dan Saffer  Dan Saffer
The son of a plumber and a psychologist, Dan feels the interaction design he does is a little bit of both. Since 1995, he’s designed everything from websites to consumer electronics to robots. He feels that design isn’t only about problem solving, but about creating a better, more humane, future. At Smart Design, Dan is one of the directors of the interaction design practice, leading and advising teams to create new interaction paradigms across a wide range of products, spanning both digital and physical. Dan’s insightful, thoughtful approach to design has been captured in the three books he’s written: Microinteractions, Designing for Interaction, Designing Gestural Interfaces, and Designing Devices.
