A couple community things we wanted to highlight.
Postscape IoT Awards
You can vote for Node-RED here.
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:
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.
