July Meeting: Mind Blowing Internet of Things (IoT) Projects

Join us and Signature Consultants on Tuesday, July 26, at 6:00 PM in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. We live in an exciting time where more and more everyday item “things” are becoming smart! “Things” have sensors and can communicate to other “things” and can provide control to more “things”. The Internet of Things, IoT, is upon us in a huge way and makers are rapidly inventing cool gadgets every day.
