It's spooky season for those who celebrate Halloween, and to get in the spirit (spirit - get it? 👻) we thought it would be fun to hack on some pumpkins and power them with some electronics and IoT goodness! We'll be showing you how you can build an IoT Jack-O-Lantern with a Raspberry Pi and Python or C# to create cool effects! Come and join us and learn how to make Boo-tiful decorations this Halloween.

Jim Bennett is a Regional Cloud Advocate focusing on building out and skilling communities in the Pacific North West, with a focus on the Microsoft Reactor in Redmond, Washington, as well as a passion for the internet of things. He’s British, so sounds way smarter than he actually is, and is happy he moved to Redmond in time to be locked down at home and not see the office he came to work in, or the places he wanted to visit. In the past he’s lived in 4 continents working as a developer in the mobile, desktop, and scientific space. He's spoken at conferences and events all around the globe, organised meetup groups and communities, and written a book on mobile development.
