Arduino Barcamp Zaragoza 2012 (#ABZ12) started the 5th of July. At 5 p.m., Cooking Hacks Team and Pablo from Arduteka were preparing the beginning of the event, with more than 50 suscribers to the Wireless Workshop attended by Marcos Yarza and Luis Martin. In this workshop, they will teach the basic examples of Arduino (blink, I/Os, Serial COM...) for those who had never worked with Arduino.
At 6.30 p.m., David Cuartielles from Arduino Team arrived to talk about the Internet of Things. We stopped the workshop to attend the lecture by David. He talked about Arduino, Open Source Hardware and how the world is changing, creating a interconnected world where devices talk between them.
David talked about an advertisement of Ericsson to understand that there are no limits to connect the devices. You must choose which ones connect and identify in the IoT. Here is the ad.
At 8 p.m. we continued with the Wireless workshop, using wireless communication through XBee 802.15.4 modules. It was a success because people start sending data between the groups and then using basic examples to take actions remotely.
Once it finished, some people keep with us and talked about their Arduino projects and some awesome performances like the following by blablabLAB:
