About the Event

Join us for talks and an ideas workshop in collaboration with the Internet of Things Alliance and Women Who Code. From connected appliances to smart cities, IoT is already all around us and becoming an increasingly important part of our world. Yet how many of us actually know about what’s going on currently in the IoT arena and what to look for in the future? Join us to get inspired, get creative and to start thinking about how your products could fit into the IoT.
