IoT day is a worldwide event bringing together makers, entrepreneurs, industry leaders, and citizens to discuss, design and develop the emerging projects and trends in Internet of Things. Initiated in 2011 by IoT Council and Postscapes, the event has grown in scale and scope to match the growing interest in the subject.
Since its inception in 2011, April 9 has been observed by a niche audience as global IoT Day in honor of the “Internet of Things,” which is projected to comprise some 50 billion connected devices by 2020.
According to organisers at the IoT Council: “Anyone is free to create an IoT Day event in your local community. It doesn’t matter whether you are participating from an entrepreneur, engineer, industrial designer or novice perspective: the events will offer different types of activities tailored to local audiences form around the world. The time is now to start having the important conversations on the technologies, security, data privacy and enormous potential that an ‘Internet of Things’ is capable of.”
Collab House is a hub of activity in the city for IoT and hardware related stuff. Collab House hosted the first ever ‘IoT day’ in India, bringing together most prominent maker/hacker communities in the city on to a single platform for networking and collaborations. Hardware communities like Hackster, iRaspberryPi, Potential labs, Maker Club, Firefox Connected Devices, Arduino Community have come together to demonstrate their products and share their insights regarding the present global trends of ‘Internet of Things’. The hall was reverberating with talks and discussions on the cutting edge technologies and the projects that they are working on. When people people shared their vision on making the society a better place to live while connecting the global communities through connected devices, other members in the hall had put together their hands to help them.
Hereby, Collab House promises to come up with many such initiatives in making this world, a better place to live through technology and connected communities.
