"Are you interested in data? design? Internet of Things? off-grid energy access? pay-as-you-go technology and applications? new ideas for connecting up provision of essential services?

Then join the University of Edinburgh and Energy Data for All for the Nairobi Energy Data Challenge from 2-4 Dec 2016!

Inventors, developers, programmers, and all-around tech lovers! Learn about emerging technologies and develop new IoT skills at the IoT Workshop with Pycom (some programming experience recommended). Registration here: http://bit.ly/NBO-IoT. Get to know how Pycom is supporting rapid development and prototyping in the IoT space, and then bring your learning along to brainstorm energy-related IoT applications at the Energy Data Challenge Weekend.

Designers, data gurus, energy enthusiasts, techies, makers and more! Put on your brainstorming caps, pull out your creativity and design skills, bring along your interest in tinkering with electronics and IoT, and add anything you know or want to learn about making data meaningful and valuable to people and come to the Energy Data Challenge Weekend. Registration here: http://bit.ly/NBO-Challenge. At the weekend, you’ll meet and work alongside University of Edinburgh students and staff as we take on challenges provided by energy service providers, NGOs, tech companies and researchers - and brainstorm, ideate and prototype all kinds of ideas and solutions around off-grid energy access and data.
