Where is the Internet of Things (IoT) headed? One way to find out is to participate in one of the many events conducted during Global Internet of Things Day on April 9, 2018. According to the sponsoring IoT Council: “IoTday is an open invitation to the Internet of Things Community to participate in an event, host a hackathon, or just a beer/coffee with a friend or fellow collaborator focused around the IoT and its implications.”
So if you are unable to find a formal event or hackathon near you, you can easily participate with friends or colleagues over a cup of java at your nearby coffeehouse or maybe a brewed beverage at a local pub. More info on the events and related happenings can be seen by following #iotday or at the IoT Council and Internet of Things Consortium websites.
The IoT Council has been sponsoring these annual happenings since 2010. Since then, IoT has exploded in many ways, but the burgeoning connected home ecosystems have been among the leading developments that most directly impact consumers.
