Thanks to Rami for sending us this tip about the OCF Hackathon June 21-22! Rami writes:
Connectivity Foundation (https://openconnectivity.org/) is hosting an IoT hackathon in Chicago and it would be awesome if my fellow Adafruit fans and community members get to join us and learn about our IoT standards and tools and software framework IoTivity (https://iotivity.org/).
Registration is free of charge just like a neutron but seats are limited and the 1st 25 registrants would get a free T-shirt. Food, drinks and hardware kits will be provided for free as well! it should be super fun and all of the OCF and IoTivity leaders will be there.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
