Boards and sensors are provided for use during the meetup are free of charge to all. But you must bring your own laptop.

We’ll give a short initial introduction, and then the participants will dive into the tutorials, going at their own pace. You get a chance to work on a board, ask questions, and make progress right there.

First tutorial: Data Monitoring (15 - 30 minutes) - Connect the board to the Internet, monitor sensor data from the board in a pre-built dashboard. Then customize the dashboard with your own widgets and data. Publish to the Discussion section of Learn IoT Community site -

Second tutorial: Data Monitoring API (15 - 30 minutes) - Walk through the Data Monitoring API and connect it to IBM’s Watson Text to Speech functionality - Using Speech in Your IoT Projects

Third tutorial: Data Intelligence (60+ minutes) - Toggle and blink LEDs using Renesas IoT Sandbox, send customized email reports automatically -
