After the successful edition of Thingscon Amsterdam 2015, we, the organising team, had the idea not to wait until December 2016 to have another get-together with our ‘new things-enthusiasts’. Also we heard a lot of attendees share the pity of only be able to do one of the workshops. That inspired us to plan the Thingscon Salons!
The Thingscon Salon is a monthly meetup organised by the Thingscon Amsterdam team in collaboration with different partners. The fist Salon took place in Amsterdam on April 1, 2016. The second in Rotterdam on May 13. The third again in Amsterdam. The fourth Salon in Eindhoven on smart society, organised together with VPRO Medialab. The Fifth Salon took place in October and had the theme The Internet of Toys. Found the report here.
We will continu with the Salons in 2017. The first took place on 27 January 2017 themed around the intimate interfaces and fashion tech. Check out this report.
March 23 we had the Salon on the future of Making at Makerversity. And we did an extra Salon at SXSW.
July 6 we had a Salon on the internet of bicycles.
Next up will be half October, a Salon in collaboration with UTwente on ethics and near-body IoT. Expect more information soon.
