some free training on IoT around the US, starts in Atlanta, then rolls into Austin and Denver and we donate what you would have paid to the Wounded Warrior project

Thought I would pass this along not just because its coming from Avnet but it gives anyone who is involved in an IoT project a chance to get the latest from key vendors face to face. Also this event series is free to attendees but Avnet will donate what would have been the registration fee to the Wounded Warrior project so there's a double benefit.  Here is a quick rundown of the event:

Avnet Embedded introduces the Internet of Things (IoT) Innovation Bootcamp, a one-of-a-kind event that will provide attending customers with a tour of the embedded world. Hear from key lines and talk trends in embedded processing, displays, software and storage. And, visit the Supplier Expo to master the latest design solutions and learn valuable strategies, insights and techniques from our innovative partner companies!
If you’re working on integrating, designing and implementing technology in 2014 and beyond, then this event is for you. Space is limited so click the Register Now button below today to reserve your FREE all access pass while seats are still available.
In lieu of a registration fee, Avnet Embedded is asking all attendees to make a cash donation, in any amount, to support the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization whose broad appeal reaches across demographic, geographic and political boundaries. Wounded Warriors is a non-partisan organization by design. It’s not about the war; it’s about the warrior.
The dates for the first 3 events are below,  just click on the event to register:

    Connecting to the Cloud, you have to do it sometime so here is some free education

    For anyone who's followed my blog you know that the cloud is key to all things IoT but there is much more to it than meets the eye.  In this session from Texas Instruments and Exosite (live or on-demand) you will learn about hardware and software (some free) you can use today to get your system cloud connected.

    In the spirit of full disclosure I now work for Avnet and TI is a key partner but this content is so good I decided to post here on my personal blog.  At the end of the day we all need to use real products and write good code so I feel its OK to plug these folks.  This is actually a series of webinars and you buy the hardware pre-release which is also very cool if you  want the latest in ARM MCU's and some solid code development tools to boot (bad pun, sorry!).
