This month we’re excited about partnering with Coral to help developers bring their local AI projects to life. We made a bit of a splash with the Steampunk Geiger Counter project, presented a simple way to start up a LoRa network with Basics Station, and helped users fix those corrupted USB or SD card drives.
From the community, we’re happy to spotlight this project guide on using balenaOS to prototype a GPS tracking system, as well as having a few guests on our IoT Happy Hour to talk shop.
Check out the updates and take care out there!
