Meet up

IoT Engineers London Kick-off Event

Wednesday, 1st November at CodeNode, London

This meetup was organised by IoT Engineers London in November 2017

Join us for the IoT Engineers London kick-off event! For this special occasion, we've rounded up some excellent speakers, engaging topics, and most importantly - world-renowned pizza. Our talks for the night are ... *drum roll*

How not to do mesh networking

So you want to collect sensor data from a network of devices on a construction site? Why not build a mesh network. Nothing out there is quite suitable for your use case, you say? Well, roll your own! How hard can it be? Very hard. In this talk I'll outline the challenges we were facing, why we went for a mesh network and what it was like rolling our own (and why it was not a good idea).

Gideon Farrell

Gideon is a co-founder and CTO of Converge, making massively scalable wireless sensors and data analytics for heavy industry. An astrophysicist by training, and a software engineer by vocation, he has set out to help make Industry more efficient and sustainable for the future.

'IoT-Specific Challenges for Automated Testing' - lessons from real-life IoT automated testing

This talk will look at a bug which nearly got to production: how it came about; what systems helped and what went wrong, as well as the challenges of testing semi-reliable behaviour.

Stefan Ross

Stefan Ross has spent 15 years developing low-power, high-value, connected devices. Since graduating from Oxford University, he has worked at start-ups like Pelikon and Electric Imp, as well as large semiconductor companies like Broadcom and CSR. His current interests include automated testing frameworks, and ensuring robust development through best-practice. Stefan leads the Tools and Integration Team at Telensa.

Testing a Bluetooth LE link in 3 easy steps

How good is the BLE solution in your prototype hardware? What functional range can you expect from your final product? How about battery life?

RF design is always a tricky topic, so avoiding it as much as possible is generally the right approach for small companies and fast design cycles. Unfortunately even if you're using an off the shelf module, you still need to know how well it's going to work for your product and your customers, and you don't want to wait until you have the product in your hands to find out.

Tom Elliot

Tom Elliot is an electrical engineer who's worked in R&D, product development. He brings design thinking to hardware design and technical expertise to product decisions. Outside engineering, Tom is hooked on architecture and minimal design, and loves to play Ultimate Frisbee.
