mbed fest 2012 was held on the 29th January 2012 at Akihabara Network and Embedded Technology Centre in Japan.
attended the event and has shared great write up of the day:
This was second mbed user meeting held in Japan after the initial mbed fest in October 2010.
There were 21 attendees and 5 presenters and it was very nice user meeting and exciting experience for all. We also arranged a live stream the event, allowing others to remotely enjoy the meeting as well.
The user meeting began with a video message from the mbed team in the UK. It was great to find out what is going on with mbed.org, and we expect a lot in future!
There were six presentations
- NXP : “What is mbed?”
- : “Geiger Counter Kit and its prototype board”
- : “BlackOne” an all-in-one mbed/LPCXpresso baseboard
- A. Saito : Cortex-M0, iOS – example of an Arduino-API implemented on an M0 board working with a smart-phone
- : “NANDethno Pocket mbed” a base board for mbed
- (who hosted this event) : “mbed and I”
Additionally, three people presented their projects in lightning-talk sessions
- : Geiger Counter project and measurement results
- : mbed Sound Synthesizer
- : Timeline printer using mbed (automatic printing of tweets with specified hash tag)
A beginners hands-on session was also done. Five people experienced how easy it is to start development and make a prototype quickly.
At the end of the user meeting – we held a lottery. Many prizes were given out including, 5 blue mbeds, 5 yellow mbeds, base boards, custom made M0 boards with LPCXpresso, RJ45 connectors with cables and a book of mbed primers. All prizes we’re kindly are provided from mbed team, NXP, and presenters.
After the meeting, we had a gathering (beer) party. Time flies so quickly.
I hope to have next meeting soon.
Thanks Okano-san for a great write-up and Mr. Junichi Katsu for sponsoring mbed fest 2012!
