Happy New Year everyone!
The more detailed oriented members here will have noticed I totally snoozed on last month’s newsletter so I’m starting with a bang this year! 2018 was a great year for our community. We found a new Shoreditch-based host, RGA. We also saw the kickoff of Better IoT, our free assessment tool for #iot startups. And many books were published by community members (including mine on smart homes!). I also got organised and you can how fill in a form to apply for a 10 minute speaking slot. We’ve been going for almost 8 years now and I always look forward to hearing a diversity of voices (and people) in #iot no matter what stage an idea is at, so don’t be shy. Now on with the latest news from the community.
