Innovation Summit: Develop an Open Hardware Based Wireless IoT Application

by Thibault Cantegrel, Director, Developer Program

What does a real IoT wireless application look like? Would you like to learn how to create a simple application yourself in a few hours, based on open hardware, and with the help of experts? How about taking home an open hardware based dev kit to continue the experience? 

Come to our Innovation Summit, held in Paris on June 17. You won't regret it!
