IoT Info Session: Build a Flood Tracker

October 22, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT


Join Code for Miami and Moonlighter for an info session on the Internet of Things (IoT) and what’s needed to build your own device. This is the first of a series of events focused on community-built devices to track shifting water levels in our local canals, waterways, street corners, and backyards!
In this session, you can expect to:

  • Learn about instances of flooding and changing water levels throughout South Florida as a result of sea level rise and King Tide
  • What’s needed to build your device
  • The first steps to building a water tracker
  • Start to form teams of 2-4 people to build your device (each device requires someone to be able to build it, program it, and test it out)
  • Dinner will be provided

In the second part of this event on Saturday, October 27th from 1:00 pm – 5:30 pm, you’ll get:

  • A quick tour of Moonlighter and the tools being used, and get set up at your workstation
  • Begin building your water-level tracking devices
  • Hands-on help from the Code for Miami and Moonlighter teams
  • Food will be provided.

We ask that participants at Code for Miami events follow our Code of Conduct ( to ensure that our group is a safe and welcoming space.
