For the sixth year in a row the IoT Council is organising IoT Day on April 9 and has issued “an open invitation to the Internet of Things Community to participate in an event, host a hackathon, or just share a beer/coffee with a friend or fellow collaborator focused around the IoT and its implications.”
The 2016 IoT Day web site says there were events in 18 countries last year and it expects this year to be even bigger. However six weeks out from the event, not one was listed on its events page. This could be because April 9, the same date as the event was held last year, falls on a Saturday this year. Anyone hosting an event is invited to submit details on this page.
The Council is also hosting a IoTLive, a day long event that will run from 7:30am EDT to5:15pm EDT. Hard to see it getting much traction in Australia, That’s 9.30pm Saturday April 9 to 7:15am on Sunday morning AEDT.
For anyone so minded the council has lined up an impressive list of speakers for the day.
