Location Cocoon Networks, 4 Christopher Street, London, EC2A 2BS
Hosted by Nordic Semiconductor
Limited to 30 participants
Nordic, the leading producer of ultra low power (ULP) wireless chips has teamed up again with Hardware Academy to bring the best expertise on bluetooth 5 to London.
Discover the great potential of the Nordic nRF52 series and the new IoT multi-sensor development kit Nordic Thingy:52. The first part of the workshop will provide an introduction to the Nordic software toolchain and the Segger Embedded Studio IDE, and show how send packets over a Bluetooth mesh network using the nRF52 Development Kit. The second part will introduce the Thingy:52 IoS Sensor platform, and show how to integrate this with the cloud using IFTTT (If This Then That)
Participants will take home a free Thingy:52 development kit.
The Nordic Thingy:52 is an easy-to-use development platform, designed to help you build IoT prototypes and demos, without the need to build hardware or write firmware. The functionality of the Thingy can be configured over-the-air via a Bluetooth API. That makes it possible to create demos and prototypes without actually programming the Thingy itself. The Thingy is built around the nRF52832 Bluetooth® 5 SoC. It connects to Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones, laptops, tablets and similar devices, and sends data to/from its sensors and actuators to an app and to the cloud. It comes with the accompanying Nordic Thingy:52 app for iOS, Android and a web app.
