UK gadgeteer Hackathon


#1

Following on from a tweet from @ Duke Nukem at the weekend im planning on going to this .Net Gadgeteer hackathon on the south coast of the UK. on Saturday, April 27, 2013 9:00 AM


If there is anyone else interested then all are welcome.

Here is a brief Synopsis

[em]The problem!

Bee keeping is not a simple task but is very rewarding as the hive is a complex, well balanced eco system. Unfortunately the bee population is in decline and they need all the help they can get, hence the idea behind this project. By logging a few simple data points, such as temp, humidity, weight we can gain info about the health of the bee hive.

Over the weekend the aim is to build an extensible sensor infrastructure which saves data online and displays the information so as to assist bee hive owners.[/em]
