The Citys Plans for a Reno Heritage Center in the Southern Pacific Railroad Depot | Alicia Barber

by StartUpNV on June 2, 2017

Just over five years ago, in the fall of 2011, the City of Reno began to lay the groundwork for renovating the historic Southern Pacific Railroad Depot on Commercial Row into a community Heritage Center. I worked closely on the plan with historic preservation specialist Mella Harmon and then-City of Reno Strategic Development Administrator Maureen McKissick. Not only a strong campus-community collaboration, the plan fits squarely into the goals of the recently completed Downtown Action Plan and the current revision of the City of Reno Master Plan by generating more foot traffic and general visitation at a downtown site in need of physical enhancement, connectivity, and walkability and by promoting adaptive reuse of historic resources.

Don't reinvent the wheel - How to be strategic about your IoT Prototyping

by StartUpNV on May 31, 2017

Breadware Development Toolkit - Beginning and Intermediate Class This session will introduce some base concepts of the Internet of Things [IoT] and will guide attendees through common techniques and tools for rapidly building and implementing internet connected prototypes. This is meant to provide a mindset for attendees to build end-to-end prototypes - spanning important base layers in hardware, mobile app, and web dashboard development. In the second part of the class we will focus on deconstructing prototype development needs to identify the primary goals of an MVP (Minimally Viable Product). We will do this by first becoming familiar with the Mega-B hardware, online portal, IDE, and app builder in order to better understand the constrains of the Breadware kit. We will then build a mock Minimally Viable Product and focus on how to best format data generated from the device to be of most use for production ready data analytics, web application development, storage, and mobile application development. Session Prerequisites Software Requirements The following software needs to be installed on your laptop The latest version the Breadware Flasher .exe download or the Arduino IDE 1.82 or later Hardware Requirements A computer a standard browser and an unused USB port Supplied Evaluation Kits Product Description The Mega-B Bread Development Kit by BreadWare Inc. (Mfr. Part #100440) is a Bluetooth LE 4.2 development kit for quickly building, testing, and iterating internet and mobile app connected prototypes. The Mega-B Bread Board is the most comprehensive member of the Breadware B-Line prototyping family. The Mega-B Development Kit comes with the Mega-B Bread Board as well as a variety of input modules, output modules, sensor modules, and a Bluetooth LE connectivity module. All modules are plug-and-play, allowing for rapid and clean prototyping. No wires, no soldering, no mess, with the added bonus of instant connectivity for mobile and web dashboard prototype development. The Mega-B Bread Board can be programmed through the Breadware Integrated Development Environment [IDE] or with the Arduino IDE. Developing with the Breadware IDE allows for extremely fast and robust development of IoT prototypes. The Breadware IDE allows for firmware development, mobile app development, and web dashboard development all from one central and easy-to-use tool. With the Breadware IDE you will be able to leverage design templates through the platforms Hardware Module Selector, build your devices firmware using our Firmware Code Editor , which is based off of a hardware object-oriented programming language (use the If/Then Code Generator for those learning the C-coding language). With the Mobile App Builder, design and customize test mobile applications and web dashboards using WYSIWYG editors, and utilize webhooks to stream data to anyplace on the web. The Mega-B Bread Board functions as a shield for the Arduino ATmega 2560 or the Microchip chipKIT Max 32 Development board and preserves all of the functionality of these base boards. Additionally all of the GPIOs of the base Arduino Mega are preserved giving you the capability to integrate 3rd party modules or your own designs with the Mega-B Development Kit. Feeling Lucky? We're hosting a giveaway for a free kit here.
