Things Manchester has developed one of the largest ‘commons-based’ Internet of Things networks in the UK. It allows the connections of all sorts of digital devices and sensors.
From the beginning of August Open Data Manchester has taken on the running and maintenance of Things Manchester’s constellation of roof and tower mounted gateways covering Manchester, Salford, Trafford, Stockport and Bury.
Join us to see what people are doing with the network, how you can get involved and become part of this great public initiative.
Things Manchester is part of the global Things Network started in Amsterdam in 2015 and one of the first cities to get connected.
Register to attend.

After the success of the first two Joy Diversions, we’re running a third day on Saturday 1st September.
Often viewed as a functional place of work, retail and leisure, our city centre bounded by Trinity Way, Great Ancoats Street and the Mancunian Way is imbued with history, iniquity, celebration and endeavour. Let us go out and find what’s out there, discover the forgotten spaces, create stories and map our city.
Starting with maps of the city from over 150 years ago, we will propose expeditions to uncharted territories, revisits to previously explored places, strange meanderings and any other diversions that people fancy.
You can see a taster of what happened on the last Joy Diversion here.
