Day 2 - 11th Dec 10:30-12:20 Europa hall (6th Floor) Novice Dimitar Krastev, Dr. Pavlin Dobrev, Kai Hackbarth, Martin Tsarev

Internet of Things is becoming the heart of more and more projects. Each IoT project starts with a PoC prototype. This workshop will walk you through what a prototyping platform is and how it impacts the development of a project. Using the Bosch XDK, we will go through what such a board offers as sensors, connectivity, functionality and extensions and interesting examples from the real world. Bosch and Zuhlke developed the platform to encourage community development and open source coding thus we will see some live coding on the stop.
