Happy New Year everyone!

Wishing you (especially those of you at CES this week) much success in your #iot endeavours! Oh and while we’re at it, if someone *is* at CES and would like to give a runthrough of this year’s show at the next meetup that would be fab. Get in touch!

Also note that on January 26th we’re doing something a bit different and super useful. Rosie Burbidge from FoxWilliams an IT law firm in London is giving 1:1 support for #iot startups on GDPR for £99. If you have ever had to deal with lawyers you know that’s cheap. IBM are hosting us, so please consider attending! If you deal with personal data GDPR will affect your business regardless of Brexit and may cost you up to 4% of your turnover. Get your ticket now!
