Registration is now open for the May meeting, which will take the
form of an afternoon workshop providing an introduction to Node-RED.

if you are planning on attending, registering sooner rather than later
is highly recommended. However, please don't register if you there is
a chance you won't make it, as spaces are limited and it would be a
terrible shame if some miss out due to the event being booked up, then
on the day we end up with empty chairs.




Event #41 — Wiring the Internet of Things with Raspberry Pi & Node-RED

21 May 2015, 12:30 - 18:30 at Fab Lab London, Off Old Jewry, 1
Frederick’s Place, London, EC2R 8AE.

  Registration: http://oshug.org/event/41

Node-RED is a visual tool for wiring together hardware devices, APIs
and online services in new and interesting ways. Used together with
Raspberry Pi it provides a compact, powerful platform that is able to
read sensors, control outputs, and send and receive data to and from
the Web and other systems.

This workshop will provide an introduction to Node-RED and integrating
simple sensors and outputs, applying basic processing and publishing
data to the Web. No prior experience with either Node-RED or
electronics is required. However, while not strictly necessary, some
experience of JavaScript would be beneficial as this is used to
implement custom functionality within Node-RED.

The introduction to Node-RED will be presented by Andy Stanford-Clark.

Andy Stanford-Clark is a Distinguished Engineer in IBM's global
Internet of Things team. He is an IBM Master Inventor with more than
40 patents. Andy is based at IBM's Hursley Park laboratories in the
UK, and specialises in the Internet of Things, remote telemetry,
energy monitoring and management, Smart Metering and Smart Grid
technologies. He has a particular interest in home energy monitoring,
home automation and driving consumer behaviour change.

Andy has been working on what we now call the Internet of Things for
more than 15 years: he co-developed the MQTT messaging protocol in
1998. Andy has a BSc in Computing and Mathematics, and a PhD in
Computer Science. He is a Visiting Professor at the University of
Newcastle, an Honorary Professor at the University of East Anglia, and
a Fellow of the British Computer Society.

Please bring a laptop and, if you have a Raspberry Pi, bring this
along with any useful sensors and LEDs. However, note that boards and
sensors etc. will also be made available for use by those who do not
have these. An SD card image will be provided with Node-RED and
associated software pre-installed.

Note: Please aim to arrive by 12:15 as the workshop will start at 12:30 prompt.

Jointly hosted by the BCS OSSG, IBM UK and OSHUG. With support from
the Knowledge Transfer Network and hardware sponsored by RS DesignSpark.
