Evidently this got posted to Realm’s website back in November, and I was not informed. Better late than never!
Evan K. Stone – Saving Lives with iBeacons
You’ve probably heard of iBeacons, but have you seen them up close or developed apps for them? iBeacon technology is a fun and easy way to start working with Bluetooth Low Energy devices. Cloud City Development has been working with Pop Up Labs at MIT to help develop a solution for educating health professionals about the Maker Movement and how it positively affects the medical community. With the help of iBeacons, health professionals have learned how to start creating their own devices and tools!
In this talk from AltConf 2016, Evan will introduce you to iBeacons, show you examples of how to interact with them in an iOS app, and demonstrate how iBeacons were implemented in a Medical Maker Kit. By helping medical staff learn about the items in the kit, they are able to get creative, build new projects, and ultimately save lives! This talk will give you a glimpse of what can be accomplished with iBeacons and will encourage you to think of new ways in which Bluetooth Low Energy devices like iBeacons can be used to design and develop creative solutions that enhance the experience of life!
I always like to see when iBeacons are used in educational ways…

Thanks to iBeacon Trends for the link!
This has been something I’ve wanted to do for a long time.
I was already signed up for CocoaConf San Jose 2015, and just a couple of weeks ago they announced in a conference email that they had four slots open for Lightning Talks. I immediately jumped at the chance.
Thankfully (and amazingly)… they accepted!
I don’t want to spoil the presentation since, after all, it’s only a five-minute presentation. However, I will say that the theme is Saving lives with iBeacons and it focuses on the combination of iOS, iBeacons, and Healthcare.
The talk came out of a recent project I was working on for a client of Cloud City Development and I thought would be perfect for a talk at a conference, and the client agreed!
Therefore, I am super excited that I can do an abbreviated version of the talk at CocoaConf San Jose, and I really hope I can do in a more robust, full-featured version in the future… but first things first!
See you there!
