Internet of Things - Cellular x LPWA IoT Hands-on Workshop
Limited Capacity seats available

If you are actively working, or have considered working on an IoT project, this is the perfect place for you to kick start your creativity and try out SORACOM cellular connectivity SIMs and IoT development platform.  

Learn how to connect Raspberry Pi / Arduino with 2G/3G/LTE cellular or LPWA network. Then connect sensors and send data to the cloud to visualize, and more! Step-by-step documentation is available for attendees to follow along and complete each scenario (Basic Linux Commands, SSH, basic programming preferred). Advanced scenarios for more complex challenges are available. IoT workshop kit (Raspberry Pi, Sensors and Global USB Dongle etc.) for each attendee will be provided during the workshop.

***To participate in the hands on workshop, attendees must bring their laptops with working WiFi & USB (Optional: bring your own keyboard / mouse) ***

Welcoming Our Robotic Overlords
Limited Capacity seats available

Robots have rapidly evolved from technological sideshows to significant additions to our daily lives. From robotic industrial arms to cute social robots, it is no secret that the field of robotics is progressing by leaps and bounds, and that this is just the beginning. This September, as part of Vancouver Startup Week, MistyWest is proud to bring together roboticists for a Build and Brag session. Come and learn how some of the leading roboticists are building the future of automation, and what ethical and philosophical concepts they have to grapple with as part of their product development process.
