In just a few hours time, we'll be launching The Things Network Bergen. If you haven't signed up yet but still want to join the close to 50 other IoT enthusiasts attending, please do so now! There are only a few spots left. Likewise, if you have signed up but is unable to attend for some reason, please change your RSVP to "Not going". It's the only way we know how many pizzas to order. 🍕
Since gateway building is one of the things we'll discuss tomorrow, it's a pleasure to announce that our friends at RAK Wireless and Pi Supply will give members of The Things Network Bergen a 5% discount on relevant hardware orders. If this sounds interesting, head over to https://uk.pi-supply.com/ and use the voucher code TTNBERGEN. A big thanks to RAK Wireless and Pi Supply for this kind gesture.
Most of you have opted in to build a simple antenna during the event. If you want to be as prepared as possible, you can read through the following tutorial in advance: https://www.thethingsnetwork.org/labs/story/simple-homemade-outdoor-868mhz-antenna-groundplane 👈🏻
Cable and piping are not included in the kit, as it will largely depend on your preferences. But we will be happy to share our experiences in this regard tomorrow.
A practical detail: If you find the door looked tomorrow, or are unable to find your way here, please call Erling on 99251284.
Finally, we want to give a big shoutout to our kind event sponsor Vimond Media Solutions. (Disclaimer: I'm a proud employee.) Visit https://www.vimond.com to learn more about what we do – we are currently hiring.
Let's start the final countdown!
