  • Following our continued success of the lightning talks, we are hosting another round! We will be having 6 speakers doing a 10-15 minute lightning talks, if you would like to get involved please message me on meetup or twitter.

    A lightning talk is a very short presentation lasting only a few minutes, given at a conference or a similar forum. Several lightning talks will usually be delivered by different speakers in a single session, sometimes called a data blitz.

    πŸ‘‰ **SQRL (Secure Quick Reliable Login) with Liam Raper**

    SQRL (pronounced β€œsquirrel”) is an open, free, intellectual property unencumbered, complete and
    practical system to cryptographically authenticate the identity of individuals across a network. Though
    principally intended for website visitor identification and account sign-in, its concepts may be extended
    for related applications. SQRL may be used alongside other traditional website sign-in systems, and it
    can replace all other systems while offering dramatic improvements in usability and security.

    Liam talk will cover:
    ⭐ What SQRL is?
    ⭐ Why SQRL is important?
    ⭐ Demonstrate SQRL working in real life
    ⭐ SQRL in ASP.NET Core

    πŸ‘‰ IoT with nothing but your Laptop

    Although the cost of IoT hardware has reduced dramatically over the last few years, you still need to choose the right IoT option, figure out what accessories it needs, order it all from Amazon and wait for it to arrive. By that point, you’ve moved on to something else entirely, so it sits in a cupboard drawer for a year and a half before you get back around to thinking about it…. Then you realise that you need some components and wires… Back in the drawer it goes!

    With the advent of HTML 5, so comes the ability to simulate a lot of IoT Kit right there in your web browser. Pete will take you through a few online simulators for IoT technology, which will give yo...

    - πŸŽ‰ Closing

    πŸ‘‰ Air Quality, Azure Functions and Spider Eggs

    Good quality air is important. After all, everyone breathes. But dig a little deeper into the subject and most of what you find is what we don't know. Is air pollution produced by local traffic? Does it waft in on the breeze? Are there times when I really shouldn't go out for a run?

    In this talk I'll describe how you can build your own connected air quality sensor and get data from it. I'll touch on embedded devices the MQTT protocol, LoRa networking, Azure IoT Hub and Azure Functions, along with our Connected Humber effort to spread sensors over Humberside. And I'll even mention spider eggs and show off my "Air Quality Top Hat".
