The Chicago Connectory goes Virtual

The Chicago Connectory has been closed for around a month due to the statewide stay-at home order but our incredible members and community have found ways to stay engaged virtually!  Over the past month, we’ve hosted different virtual workshops, webinars, and lectures.

On March 26th, Chicago Connectory member Moonshot by Pactera EDGE hosted part three of their Design Sprints workshop virtually. Their past Design Sprints sessions were hands-on and collaborating; they were able to recreate this hands-on feeling using different digital products. Using Zoom as their conferencing platform they were able to host over 100 participants. In addition to Zoom, the team used MURAL, an online platform for virtual collaboration and team activities. Mike Kim, Practice Lead of Digitalization and Sandy Jachs, Client Partner moderated the session switching between the two platforms to keep their audience engaged and actively participating.

In addition to workshops, the Connectory continues to host member-exclusive events for our community. On April 2nd, Chordant presented their data sharing solution exclusively to our members. The presentation gave an in-depth overview of the platform and the value it brings to teams working on data-centric projects. Because our community is centered around IoT with many members focused on mobility, Vanja Subotic, lead of Strategic Partnerships and Marketing, emphasized Chordant’s solutions for connected and autonomous mobility and complex infrastructure and facilities data sharing.

The Connectory continues to provide IoT education to the Chicago tech-community and now – beyond! David Castillo, Bosch IoT Cloud Consultant, has continued hosting his IoT Foundation Series virtually. This four-part session focuses on general IoT knowledge and the AWS platform. After completing the series participants will have foundational knowledge and skills within AWS IoT and hands-on experience with a broad range of topics, such as telemetry, command and control, and analytics.

Although we’re eager to (safely) return to the Chicago Connectory, we’re thankful for our team, community, and anyone virtually engaging with the Connectory! We hope to continue offering exciting and interesting virtual events for our community and beyond.
