A couple community things we wanted to highlight.

Postscape IoT Awards

Voting for Postscapes 3rd annual Internet of Things awards is currently open and we’re very grateful to find Node-RED nominated in both the Open Source and Technical Enabler categories.

You can vote for Node-RED here.

Makerland Conference

Tickets are now available for the first Makerland conference in March. A 3 day event in Warsaw, Poland, that promises to offer a mix of talks and workshops on all things IoT.

One of the workshops is being run by friend of Node-RED, Charalampos Doukas and is described as:

Magic Lights

The workshop project involves using a RaspberryPi and Bluetooth 4.0 for automatically turning on a Philips Hue wireless lamp based on user proximity (using a smartphone or a device like the Fitbit). The workshop will teach participants how to use Node-RED for interacting with Objects/Smart Things. We will learn the basic elements of Node-RED, how to interface with hardware like the Arduino, how to write custom code and how to consume external services using APIs.

Early bird tickets are available for a couple more weeks.

If you have anything you want to share about Node-RED, please do get in touch - either on twitter or the mailing list.
