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


Additionally, three people presented their projects in lightning-talk sessions

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!
