What’s happening, everyone? We hope you had a good month. It’s time for another update from balena-land.
The first thing I want to mention this month is our Barcelona Hackathon 2019, tickets are selling fast and so if you want to join us, make sure to head over to the Eventbrite page as soon as you can.
We’ve been busy digging into the power circuitry on the balenaFin, working with a mixed 32 and 64-bit container application on the Raspberry Pi 4 and experimenting with the new web bluetooth feature in Chrome. We’ve also been rolling out new features for balenaCloud, as always, with the new device health checks feature in the dashboard.

Projects of the month
Every month we like to feature a few projects built by the community, this month it’s:
IOTAIR: Pay-Per-Use Air Conditioning: Next, Claudio built a system for pay-per-use air conditioning using a Raspberry Pi and e-Ink display, dubbed IOTAIR. The system allows vacation rental tenants to pay for air conditioning as and when they use it, and additionally gives control from a web app so it can be controlled remotely. Great job, Claudio!
Feel free to give them a try and let the world know how you get on in the forums; the authors of these projects would love to know how you’re using them.
