Marketing with the Internet of Things

Thursday, 01/29/2015 7:30 am
Eisenhart Auditorium ~ Rochester Museum & Science Center, 657 East Avenue, Rochester, NY 14607
Details | Event Website

IoT (Internet of Things) is a hot topic in the news, but it is it really effecting consumer behavior? From a marketers perspective we need to understand how these devices will change our lives and how we can use them to reach consumers in unique ways.

In this session our panelists will help you answer some of the following questions:

  • The landscape of the IoT - what devices are out there, and what's next
  • Consumer adoption of devices - how many are really out there (and how many are gathering dust in drawers)
  • What are the data opportunities available to marketers?
  • Will we really see ads on our refrigerators , watches or tiny screens?

If you have specific questions you'd like answered, please submit them to Peter Platt (pplatt@psquareddigital.com) and we'll be sure to have them addressed during the session. 

Agenda:
7:30 - 8:00 Networking and Continental Breakfast
8:00 - 8:45 Presentation
8:45 - 9:00 Q&A

First Monday Electronics

Monday, 02/02/2015 7:00 pm
The Foundry, 298 Northampton Street, Buffalo, NY 14208
Details | Event Website

This will be a meetup for anyone interested in electronic circuits, microcontrollers, and learning more about how electronic things work. It will be held the first Monday of each month.

If you already have a laptop and an Arduino (or compatible microcontroller), bring them and we will find things for you to learn. I'll help explain, too, but the best way to learn is to do.

If you don't understand what I just said about an ada-whosie-whatsit, show up and I can show you what a microcontroller is, how circuits work, and how to make things blink!

Here's the best part... To force myself to stay on top of this event, at the end of the night, we will group-think assignments for people that want to go further. This means every month you show up, you get to help decide the topics for the next month. Then at the next meetup, everyone who took on an assignment can show it off (and maybe even explain the circuit/code/build process).
