Heard a lot about IoT? The Cloud? kind of understand it – but not sure you really do? Or know a lot about it, and want to share what you know?

Come along to ‘IoT & the Cloud – thoroughly mix a lot of old technologies with some new,  a lick of paint, some spit and polish: and voila! New technology’

 Presented by Romana Challans.

 Romana is a long time member of LinuxSA who, after years of skirmishes in the famous Vi vs Emacs wars, (Vi/Vim of course), retired to lurk on the lists.  She is also a lecturer in Information Technology/Computer Science topics at Flinders University – including the technology she will be discussing.

 She is also occasionally dangerous in her wheelchair.
