Activity Round Up – March 2015

It is that time again, we have rounded up the updates and news from the first few months of 2015. If you missed the last round up, you can find it here.


Upcoming Events:

This weekend (March 13-15) we will be exhibiting at SXSW Create in Austin, TX. If you haven’t heard of SXSW Create, it is a part of the SXSW Interactive Festival, this event brings together innovators and technology enthusiasts to showcase the disruptive solutions that are shaping our future. At our booth we will be showing how to get started with mbed, and mbed-enabled demo products live in actions. Not to mention we will have the mbed-powered Freescale Nerfinator onsite!

Just before SXSW starts on Tuesday March 10, Austin Blackstone, one of our applications engineers will be leading the third session in his mbed MeetUp Series. This MeetUp will take place at the Austin Capital Factory at 7pm. Find out more information and RSVP here.

Past Events:

The last two weeks the mbed team has been working hard at Embedded World and Mobile World Congress. The best part is we were honored with the Best in Show Award at Embedded World! Check out our round up and videos here.


Also towards the middle of February, KDDI hosted a Firefox OS WoT (Web of Things) Hackathon in Tokyo. Over 70 participants came together to collaborate on web technology and to learn how to develop with mbed. Watarai-san, has created a great write-up of the event here.



We have had a lot to celebrate so far this year from reaching over 100,000 developers on mbed, the release of the IoT Starter Kit – Ethernet Edition that was developed in collaboration with IBM, to the mbed Device Server 2.3 release.


We have recently published some useful tutorial videos on our YouTube channel. Find resources getting started with mbed, troubleshoot problems, etc. Have a suggestion for a video you would like to see, leave us a note at the bottom of this blog and/or on the YouTube channel.

Also is you missed the joint webinar with CSR webinar that discusses how you can use mbed and CSR shields to create Internet of Things (IoT) devices, you can catch the recording here.


New platforms:

Last but not least we have had a number of new components added from sensors, internet connectivity to the new Sparkfun mbed Starter kit.
