MCQN Ltd. is a leading product agency working with connected devices and the Internet of Things.
Let us explain what the Internet of Things is, how it will affect your work, and how you might take advantage of it.
Recently we've been investigating how to take some hands-on Internet of Things making into school with fellow residents-at-DoES-Liverpool Imagication. We submitted it to the Digital Maker call and were one of the seven projects chosen. Here's the video we made to pitch the idea, and the press release we're putting out about the project.

At the end of this week there was a two-day conference here in Liverpool, for student developers, called CodePool13. The second day kicked off with a talk from me, introducing the Internet of Things and providing some pointers to how to get started with it. My slides are below, and I'll include a brief version of my notes, but lots of it was just me talking about lots of nice IoT projects.carry on reading...
