Event description

Description

Build an Internet of Things (IoT) project on resin.io!

Are you a 'hardware curious' developer who's been thinking about building an IoT project? Or perhaps you're an experienced hobbyist and hacker looking to take your project to the next level? Or maybe you just want to learn more about resin.io and the Internet of Things?

Join the resin.io team for a day-long workshop and hackathon at The Cube Athens and build an IoT project from start to finish. We'll provide everybody with a starter kit (Raspberry Pi 3 and peripherals + basic Sense HAT + reference project ideas) and all the support you need to get your project up and running. The kits are yours to keep so you can continue hacking at home!

About resin.io

Resin.io helps you develop, deploy, and manage your code on connected devices, whether it's home automation, robotics, complex applications, or small server nodes. We bring a modern and accessible software development workflow, including Docker containers and 'git push' functionality, to the Internet of Things. Our mission is to help create a fully programmable world by unlocking the power of edge computing as the most powerful platform for innovation.

FAQs

Will there be food provided?

Yes, we will provide a light breakfast, lunch, early dinner and plenty of snacks, drinks, and coffee.

Do I need to bring a laptop at the hackathon?

Yes, please bring your own laptop to the hackathon! And don't forget a charger.

Can I bring my own hardware to use at the hackathon?

Definitely! It helps, though, if you check what sort of devices are currently supported on resin.io. And remember that we'll have hardware kits available for all attendees to use.

How can I prepare myself for the hackathon?

If you're completely new to resin.io and/or the Internet of Things, don't worry! We'll go step-by-step through everything you need to get started. However, if you want to make the most of your time and the expertise we'll have on hand, there are a few things you can do beforehand to hit the ground running:

With this list completed, you'll have all the developer tools you need to dive into the workshops. And you if want to be super-duper prepared, take some time to learn about the technologies you'll be working with:

Are there examples of projects I'll be able to work on?

We've got a handful of projects that have everything you need to deploy to your device without modification. These are great for getting familiar with resin.io, and they can serve as a base for your project:

These are, of course, a very small sample of what can be done with a Raspberry Pi, a Sense HAT, and some creative thinking. For more inspiration, check out these projects:

The sky really is the limit, so bring your craziest ideas and let us help you figure out how to make them a reality!
