What’s on offer?

The BIG IoTHack event aims to bring together people from business and technical backgrounds, in an intensive weekend to work on real world challenges and ideas where IoT technology can provide a solution. You’ll develop a prototype product and will receive help to create a business plan and then you’ll pitch to a panel of expert judges. The winning pitches will receive prizes that help get their idea to the next stage. There’s plenty of technology on offer too, with hardware from Pycom, Cloud services from Global Cloud providers and LPWAN Networks and access to the University of Surrey’s 5G test-bed and VR/AR Lab and much more. You’ll have expert mentors on hand to inspire, support and help. Your ideas will quickly become a reality.

Eat/Drink/Talk/Meet February 2018: Infrastructure - Tame, or Contain?

The Basingstoke Tech Scene wish you a belated welcome to 2018 with a pair of talks focused on Infrastructure. James Belchamber will be taking you on a journey through codifying your infrastructure using Terraform - then Lewis Oaten will be telling you how to scrap it all and containerise everything instead, using Docker and Kubernetes. Both will be talking from bitter and hard-earned experience.

Oh, and of course we'll have the usual pizza/beer/wine/soft drinks/water, hosted in the finally-completed (and awesome) DeskLodge atrium. See you there!
