Invitation: Pachube/Nanode evening at London Hackspace, Thursday 1 Sept
After months of exciting progress and more than a handful of remarkable milestones Nanode is coming home: Ken Boak, the creator of this low-cost Internet-enabled microcontroller will visit the London Hackspace next week on Thursday 1 Sept, and with him Usman Haque and Ed Borden of Pachube, to talk about the Internet of Things and the Nanode project.
This is a good opportunity to catch up on their respective progress (lots of recent news on all sides: Nanode Applications weekend, OggCamp, …), a great chance for beginners to get familiar with both projects, and just generally a chance to hang out with the Nanode community.
Everyone’s invited, please spread the word!
Is anyone interested in showing off their Nanode or Pachube projects? Get in touch with Ken or myself, or just bring it along on the night.


Nanode & Pachube at the London Hackspace With Usman Haque and Ken Boak Thursday 1 Sept 2011 (starts around 8pm)

Pachube (pronounced “PATCH-bay”) is a London-based on-line database service provider allowing developers to connect sensor data to the Web and to build their own applications on it. It was created in 2007 by architect Usman Haque. Following the nuclear accidents in Japan in 2011, Pachube was used by volunteers to interlink Geiger counters across the country to monitor the fallout.
Nanode is an open source Arduino-like board that has in-built web connectivity, designed by Ken Boak in late 2010. It is a low cost platform for creative development of web connected ideas. The first boards were produced for the London Hackspace in early 2011, and by mid-2011 more than 500 boards have been sold worldwide. Nanode boards can easily be soldered by absolute beginners in electronics.
