The Academy Awards night is coming and it’s a perfect moment to be nominated and  win a prize.  Casa Jasmina project won its prize yesterday: the Internet of Things Awards, showcasing excellence in all areas across the Internet of Things since 2011, in the category of best IoT open source project – Editors Choice Winner.

The Open Source award “honors projects that bring those values to the Internet of Things, either by incorporating open source technology or by making public the details of their own designs and software”, this is the idea of the IoT awards organization in which Casa Jasmina completely believes.

The open source movement is for Arduino and consequently for Casa Jasmina, the core of internet in terms of hardware, software and protocols that compose the global communication infrastructure, and in this way the power of collaborative development is the main focus of Casa Jasmina idea.

As a futuristic Wunderkammer, Casa Jasmina will collect and share artificialia to present in a open way system what and how the IoT concepts will change the daily home life.

Winning this competition is for Casa Jasmina the acknowledgement of a project that take on to transform into reality a series of reflections around IoT and open source. Casa Jasmina is really proud to have been selected between 21 projects, because this represent the attention we are trying to attract.

There is still a lot of work, Casa Jasmina is working hard to rich the goal; it’s not simple but awards like this give hope to the project, and show the interest that exists on these issues.

So thank you all

Hackster is a hardware creation community and since last february has been organizing Hardware Weekends with hackathons all over US. On Saturday and Sunday June 26th and 27th  it’s  coming back to New York City for the last time in 2015.  This hackathon is focused on open source hardware and the maker communities across America: all ages and skill levels are welcome (Children under 16 should be accompanied by an adult.)

Here’s a short video from their event taking place at Kickstarter offices last month and some pictures past events.

Hackster is providing all the food, tools, soldering stations, 3D printers, workshops and gear (Arduinos, Particle, LinkItOne, Intel Edison, Pebble, Smart Things, and software from Autodesk, Azure and more!)

$1000 Grand Prize from Microsoft and Arduino Zeros from Hackster!

Register your participation here.  It’s going to be a lot of fun!

We are happy and proud to announce that  David Cuartielles, co-founder of Arduino and CEO of Arduino Verkstad, got this year’s prize from the Swedish Electrical and Computer Engineers’ National Association (Svenska Elektro- och Dataingenjörers Riksförening) SER. The association awards an engineering student and a senior engineer that works with electrical, data and IT technology. The senior engineer has to lead an important role in smart and sustainable technological development:

This year the award goes to David Cuartielles from Malmö University for his open source platform Arduino, which is based on easy to use hardware and software to develop interactive projects.

This award – David said – has been possible thanks to the kind support of the Arduino familyMalmö Högskola and most importantly, the open source community.
