October: The Australian Maker Movement and its IoT Impact
Our October event is on, usual time, usual place:
6:30pm, Thursday, October 5th, 2017.
Stag & Hunter Hotel, Mayfield. Upstairs function room - look for the staircase in the middle of the pub.
The Maker Movement is worldwide phenomenon that has put the creative and technical tools, once reserved for professionals, into the hands of amateurs and enthusiasts. And the results have been spectacular - inventions, businesses, creations of every scale have sprouted from the hands of the self-motivated and the curious.
The accessibility of tools and technology has in no small part, driven the rapid adoption of the Internet of Things. And a significant part of that accessibility is thanks to the incredible devotion of our very own Newcastle based electronics shop, Core Electronics. I'm delighted to welcome the founder and managing director at Core Electronics, Graham Mitchell, as guest presenter this month.
Graham is a tireless contributor to the maker movement, and will share a little about his story and the Australian maker movement in general.
As usual, outside the main event there will be a news recap, plus plenty of opportunity to talk business and tech with like-minded folk from the local area. Feel free to bring up a drink from the bar downstairs or even order a meal from the restaurant, plus there'll be free finger food after the talks. All are welcome, but please RSVP so we can get the catering right.
