Within the next few days, our CEO and Internet of Things advocate, Marc Pous, will be in Munich, Germany to attend two very important events and will represent thethings.iO.
The first event is the Intel Internet of Things Roadshow, where Intel will be presenting their new Internet of Things platform, the Intel GalileoGeneration2 and the Intel Edison. Intel is investing a lot of effort into their new IoT platform. Marc will be at the Roadshow discussing his experience on the Internet of Things and then also as a judge for the IoT hackathon on Sunday. If you are in Munic, don’t miss out on such an important IoT event.
StartupBootcamp IoT Barcelona
Monday, Marc will be mentoring the selected startups that make it out of Munich in Switzerland at the StartupBootcamp Munich Pitch Days. StartupBootcamp is opening a new Internet of Things accelerator in Barcelona where they will help 10 IoT startups get to the next step, where Marc will also be a mentor to young companies.

Welcometo IoTFriday at thethings.iO. This weekend Oktoberfest will be taking place in Munich. For those of you who have never been, it’s a huge, gorgeous party with lots of food and beer. We get the opportunity to co-organize the 3rd edition of the Oktoberfest of Things hackathon. The main goal is to connect Oktoberfest beers to the Internet.
Today at the IoTFriday I’m going to talk about the Oktoberfest of Things and how to connect beers to the Internet.

We are very excited to announce that thethings.iO has been selected as winners of the Wayra Weekend at Barcelona last week on the 23 of June.
After our efforts to be accelerated at Wayra Munich in the past year, we were selected among more than 600 startups to be accelerated at Wayra Barcelona for the next 6 months.
Following some month of intensive development and meetings, we are ready to take the first accelerated step down our road ahead of us. Our mission is to help Internet of Tings companies and users to improve their Internet of Things experience, and we plan to make that happen with Wayra and Telefonica.
Since the end of July, we moved into the Telefonica Tower located in Barcelona to work out of the Wayra headquarters. Lets introduce the team from left to right: Jose Manuel is our CTO Maverick, Martí our Data scientist, Marc is our CEO and IoT Advocate, Adrià is our SysOps Robot and Andrés is our Maker in Residence.
