Lantern - an artistic IoT Lighting Project

Nov 1, 2017 · Greater Manchester, United Kingdom

Hi everyone,

We are pleased to invite you to our next event. Our very own James Linnegar will be talking about his experiments in the IoT field. This is a special event in coordination with Ladies of Code, taking place in ThoughtWorks' brand new office in Federation House.     

The Talk: 

Bored with building CRUD apps? Tired of arguments on which *.JS framework to use? Never quite finishing those little pet projects? Having spent years half finishing personal blogs and mini-websites, James decided to dedicate some of his spare time to experimenting with an IoT project with little value with an aim to actually finish something, (and learn about the practicalities of an IoT application). 

Lantern is an IoT experiment taken that little bit too far and in this talk James will talk about taking technology tinkering, prototyping and experimentation back to its roots. Though the designing, hacking and prototyping a project from solder to server and share some of discoveries along the way.

The Speaker:

James is a senior UI developer, and part time tinkerer at ThoughtWorks with over 10 years experience of not finishing personal projects. Working as a Developer, BA and UX, James is passionate about creating new and unique user interactions that are novel, interesting, exciting and occasionally deliver value.

Food and drinks will be provided.
