This Thursday (Jul 28, ’16), we are hosting a MeetUp at 6pm at our location in downtown Palo Alto (Google Maps – MeetUp info). Mehfuz and Nic will show how to create native cross-platform Apps using NativeScript and CouchBase.
Mehfuz will also show how to use his Estimote plugin; combined with the CouchBase plugin, the iBeacon data read by one phone is automatically synchronized to the other.
We are sprinkling a slight IOT overlay on the MeetUp. We took some of the RFID configuration we used in a Conference App earlier this year and we now have them connected to a Raspberry Pi 3. UPS-willing, the plan is to add some RFID tags to the badges for the MeetUp and show you how a modern Data Speed Layer (like AMTech.Solutions) can be used to track an asset (you) on a space.
Following the Pokemon Go mania, I’ve ordered some Pokemon figures as prizes for the attendees. Raichu arrived yesterday, others to follow (update – All Pokemons are here; check the Flickr Album). See you on Thursday.
