In July we held a “Build a LoRa node” workshop at c4di. It was great fun for us, and those who took part. Today we did it again. I turned up, fresh from my media appearance and helped Robin set things up. As before, the aim was to get attendees to build a working LoRa node and finish up with a device sending environmental data to the cloud.
Everybody succeeded. It was great to watch them all convert a “bag of bits” into a working sensor node and then watch as they saw their readings appearing in their browsers.
We run the events when we get eight or nine people together who want to have a go. They are hosted in the lovely environment of the c4di and we only charge you for the parts that you take away. If you want to come along to our next one, just send me an email or a direct message on twitter and I’ll add you to the list.
