Google for Entrepreneurs1,490,328We're excited to announce we'll be hosting a Hangout with some of the great innovators of our time,+Elon Musk and +Richard Branson, in a conversation moderated by Googler +Yonca Brunini. They'll discuss entrepreneurship, space travel, and advice for entrepreneurs around the world. They'll take questions from entrepreneurs at tech hubs like the +Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship South Africa, +Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship - Caribbean, and +Virgin Money. We're excited to hear from these two entrepreneurs who embody 10x thinking, and to be inspired by their vision for the future. Tune in on Thursday, August 8th!  9am California time 11am Jamaica time 5pm UK time 6pm South Africa timeHangout with Elon Musk and Sir Richard Branson2013-08-08 18:00:006767  
Google Developers2,093,060Google I/O is an annual developer conference featuring highly technical, in-depth sessions, and showcasing the latest from Google's product teams and partners.Google I/O 20132013-05-14 23:00:005060  
Alasdair Allan32,331This one day course will guide you through developing location aware applications for the iOS platforms that make use of the onboard sensors: the 3-axis accelerometer, the magnetometer, the gyroscope, the camera and the GPS. You'll learn how to make use of these onboard sensors and combine them to build sophisticated location aware applications. You'll also learn how to extend the reach of the on-board sensors by connecting your iOS device to external hardware. We'll look at how to connect the Arduino micro-controller platform to your iOS device, and build simple applications to control the board and gather measurements from sensors connected to it, directly from iOS. This course will give you the background to build your own applications independently, using the hottest location-aware technology yet for any mobile platform.iOS Sensors and External Hardware Masterclass2012-10-08 09:00:001

Manufacturers have been quick to pledge support for +Google's new beacon standard, #Eddystone . But the rush to offer support may have consequences, as basic security considerations are being ignored.

Our analysis shows that it’s possible to reconfigure any +Estimote beacon running their current developer firmware to broadcast an entirely different URL. The vulnerability allows you to update beacons you don’t own, and theoretically at least, are not supposed to have authorisation to access. #Bluetooth   #BLE   #iBeacon   #EddystoneBeacon

The partnership between +Particle and #Digistump  might well be a leading indicator of a change in the microcontroller market. It might indicate that the diasporan expansion in the market is coming to an end, and a consolidation phase at the cloud API and tools level might well be beginning to occur.

The #ESP01  breakout board for the #ESP8266  is really easy to get your hands on, but isn't particularly breadboard friendly. In this, the final part of a three part series on the #ESP8266  SoC, I walk through building a breadboard adaptor for the board.
