Description

Discover your Internet of Things awesomeness with two days of imagination and creativity at the IoT Auckland Techweek Hackathon.

Following on from previous hackathon events we have held, this is an open invitation to connect and learn how to use the latest generation of communications technology for Internet of Things applications.

We are providing Pycom IoT development modules to work with. These provide a range of capability for monitoring, controlling and connecting IoT systems to applications. Easy to setup and use with rapid development of real world practical applications.
