Toward patient empowerment in chronic disease: the Tag-it-yourself concept in Diabetes self-monitoring

Tag-it-Yourself™ (TiY) is a diabetes journaling platform developed at the Interaction Design Centre (University of Limerick).

Djordje Djokic: IoT day Paris 2013

The first event was set up by Bearstech & CKAB, and the second by Pierre Métivier. Drinks and bites took place during lunch time, from 12 to 14 pm, so people from our digitally active neighbourhood can join. Some serious hacking took place, and we networked with a couple of friends and colleagues. Mostly coworkers and people we know. I think next year we should advertise a bit more about free beer that was included in the invitation as in “try our open-source mission-critical home-brewed BearsBeer”.

For the IoT Day 2014 we’ll probably organise something more elaborated as well.
