Follow along with a Hack Kit Pro
If you’re planning on attending, we highly recommend picking up a Hack Kit Pro! Most of the hacks that we’ll be covering are based on the components in it.
Keynote - Bryan Costanich
Did you know that in just a few years there will be 10x as many non-mobile connected things on the planet as humans? IoT/hardware is the quiet revolution in technology today, and it’s bigger than anything that’s come before it. Join us as we demystify IoT and show you just how easy it can be to build connected hardware with C#, using Meadow; the latest innovation from former Xamarin folk that enables you to run full .NET applications on real embedded hardware: microcontrollers.
Getting Started with Meadow - Adrian Stevens
Join Adrian Stevens as he shows you how to get up and running with the Meadow. Setup your development environment, configure your Meadow dev kit, and deploy your first application.
Rapidly Building Hardware with Meadow.Foundation - Adrian Stevens
Meadow.Foundation greatly simplifies the task of building connected things with Meadow, by providing a unified driver and library framework that includes drivers and abstractions for common peripherals such as sensors, displays, motors, and more. Join us to learn just how easy it can be to build with Meadow.Foundation.
Social Hour and Expert 1x1s
Integrating Low-power Wireless Communications with Meadow - Bryn Lewis
Did you know that most wireless devices use one of just a handful wireless chips and protocols? This means that with Meadow, you can connect to, and control, nearly all of them. In this talk, Bryn Lewis is going to walk through the taxonomy of common wirless protocols, frequencies, and the chips that operate them. Along the way, we’ll look at Nordic Semi nRF24, Semtech SX1231, HopeRF RFM69, Semtech SX1276, and HopeRF RF95 integrations and what you can do with them!
Designing a Custom Meadow PCB Wing - Bryan Costanich
Designing custom circuits may be intimidating, but they don’t have to be. Join Bryan as he walks through designing a custom Meadow wing circuit board from start to finish.
Designing Enclosure Series
Building a Meadow project and need an enclosure? Even with a cheap 3D printer, you can print just about anything these days.
Designing a Meadow Enclosure with Fusion 360 - Frank Kruger
Designing a Meadow Enclosure with Fusion 360 - Jorge Ramirez
Join Jorge as he walks through creating a simple 3D printable product enclosure for Meadow in Fusion 360.
Meadow Network Stack Demo - Mark Stevens
Hack Show and Tell - You!
Do you have a cool hack that you’ve done with Meadow? Sign up for a 5-10 minute slot to show it off and tell us about it!
Closing Fireside and Q&A - Karina Ung & Bryan Costanich
We’re wrapping the day up with a frieside chat, hosted by Karina, who will be interviewing Bryan and moderating a community Q&A.
