IoT Info Session: Build a Flood Tracker

October 22, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Free

Join Code for Miami and Moonlighter for an info session on the Internet of Things (IoT) and what’s needed to build your own device. This is the first of a series of events focused on community-built devices to track shifting water levels in our local canals, waterways, street corners, and backyards!
In this session, you can expect to:

  • Learn about instances of flooding and changing water levels throughout South Florida as a result of sea level rise and King Tide
  • What’s needed to build your device
  • The first steps to building a water tracker
  • Start to form teams of 2-4 people to build your device (each device requires someone to be able to build it, program it, and test it out)
  • Dinner will be provided

In the second part of this event on Saturday, October 27th from 1:00 pm – 5:30 pm, you’ll get:

  • A quick tour of Moonlighter and the tools being used, and get set up at your workstation
  • Begin building your water-level tracking devices
  • Hands-on help from the Code for Miami and Moonlighter teams
  • Food will be provided.

We ask that participants at Code for Miami events follow our Code of Conduct (https://github.com/Code-for-Miami/codeofconduct) to ensure that our group is a safe and welcoming space.
