Summer is nearing a close, but there is still a lot to look forward to as Fall starts to move in. One such great thing is Node-RED, which happens to be the topic of Meeting of the Minds #5! We’ll be covering Node-RED which has superb applications for almost everyone. Automating some of your home automation gadgets, simulating device behaviors, connecting disparate systems, and much more all fall under the capabilities of a Node-RED system.

Eric Crook (@ecrook on our Slack group) has volunteered to give us a presentation on Node-RED and shine some light on its capabilities and reveal some of its more common use-cases. With it being able to run on commodity hardware as well as powerful server-grade machines, everyone can explore Node-RED and find their own uses for it. Feel free to bring your Raspberry Pi and we’ll help get Node-RED up and running for you after the presentation!

I’d like to thank JetBrains s.r.o. for their continued support of KC Tech Group!

Join us for a chance to join our raffle for a free license to one of JetBrains’ incredible IDEs or development tools! Also, check out their site for some of their other community offerings, they’ve got some great ways to get started with some great new technologies.

We’ll see you at 6:30pm on September 7th at Third Space Coffee House in Bonner Springs, KS:

Until then… Happy coding! 😎
