IoT Devfest is a one day event focused on the Internet of Things. This is the 5th year of the event. We have a fast paced speaker track with 25 minute talks and multiple 2 hours hands on workshops. Last year we had 12 amazing talks as well as 11 hands on hardware workshops with speakers from around the world.
IoT Devfest has two tracks: workshops and talks. The workshop track consists of multiple concurrent 2 hour workshops. The speaker track is 1 speaker at a time in a 100+ person auditorium doing 25 minute talks. We need speakers for both!
Workshops are a huge commitment for a few reasons 1) we repeat them as many times as you are willing and 2) workshops consist of 20 to 30 people doing hands on work which usually requires helping 29 of them one at a time. But don’t worry! We can help you find volunteers. We have some ideas for amazing workshops that don’t take expensive hardware so if you want to run an idea by the organizers please reach out. You can also take a look at what we did last year on the workshops page.
All workshops will require some bit of hardware and for this we look to sponsors and organizers to get the necessary parts and equipment. Let us know in your submission what you would need and the approximate cost. This year we have access to computer labs so let us know if you might need keyboard and display (like when working with a raspberrry pi).
