A thanks, a preview and an invite

Thank you to all the beta testers who showed up—on indecently short notice—at the informal meeting of minds, breadboards and GSM modules. There's nothing like meeting face-to-face and testing things when it comes to what THINGCONNECT does best: to mix hardware, software and radio waves.

Here's a list of ingredients for the upcoming tutorial I'm working on. Adafruit FONA 808 GSM+GPS module, Adafruit Pro Trinket 3V Arduino-compatible uC board, THINGCONNECT, IBM's Node-RED and Bug Labs' Freeboard. All open-source, open-hardware, and easy to set up on your own server. If you're a THINGCONNECT beta tester, you are getting your own cloud server for testing.  (If you're not a beta tester yet, sign up!!)

Hope to see old and new faces at a future meet up!
