Become a LoRaWAN Expert at The Things Conference

10 January 2019 / by Laurens Slats, Community Manager, The Things Network

TTN Blog Main imgSince the introduction by Semtech of its LoRa® devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) and inception, in February 2015, of the LoRaWAN® protocol, hundreds of organizations have committed to using the open standard. Over 500 companies have joined the LoRa Alliance™, a non-profit association committed to developing and promoting LoRaWAN, which is revolutionizing the way we connect things to the Internet.

To meet the increasing demand for LoRaWAN-based products, The Things Network is organizing The Things Conference, the world’s largest LoRaWAN conference that brings together over 2,000 Internet of Things (IoT) developers, innovators and integrators to Amsterdam on January 31 and February 1.

Wienke Giezeman, Initiator of The Things Network explains: “The world is screaming for LoRaWAN experts, capable of creating the next generation of connected solutions. At The Things Conference, ideas are shared, experts are born and partnerships are built.”

At The Things Conference, the global LoRaWAN developer ecosystem and businesses will come together to share knowledge about the hard bits of IoT development, including the challenging development cycles and the common mistakes that can eat up time, money and resources. Content will be provided to learn how to mitigate risks during your LoRaWAN-based development. IoT is not a fairy tale, it is hard work, persistence and risk.
