Mbed Fest in Yokohama Japan - February 24 2018

This past weekend, the Mbed community in Japan held the first community gathering of the year, locally known as 'エンベッド祭り', or Mbed Fest. It is a quarterly celebration for the community that highlights local partners, companies and individuals using Mbed. The projects ranged from running JavaScript Node-RED flows on Mbed Enabled devices to selfie cameras built with thermal printer shields. For full coverage and a video of the event, read on below.

On Twitter, the event used the #mbed_fest hashtag, and you can find a summary of all tweets.

Community projects

The community in Japan had a strong showing with a wide range of projects that ranged from professional deployments to research focused projects to those that were just for fun.

Lighting talks

In addition to formal scheduled presentations, we also had a series of 5-minute lightning talks that were open to the community to discuss their ongoing or upcoming projects. The theme this time was open ended.
