Join us for the third Hardware Hangout, where you can meet and connect with fellow enthusiasts and professionals in the industry.

Two new things this time around! First, location! Hart Smart Products is hosting our first “field trip” edition of Hardware Hangout. Second, a new name for this group! Welcome to the Iowans of Things!


Inspired by our excellent host venue, the Tech Talk topic for this event is prototyping! And we’re hoping you’ll be a part of it. If you have stories to share, pitfalls to point out, or tips and tricks to trade, sign up to be on the panel of speakers when you register!

Registration below.
