There was a time when working on home automation projects meant committing to a specific ecosystem. But with the recent introduction of Matter — an open-source protocol that enables seamless communication between IoT devices — you now have more options. Join Elektor, SparkFun, and Silicon Labs on August 24, 2023 (4:00 PM Berlin) for an insightful webinar, "A Matter of Collaboration: Developing with the Thing Plus Matter Board and Simplicity Studio."
In this webinar, Rob Reynolds (Creative Technologist, SparkFun) joins Clemens Valens to demonstrate how to develop a small, Matter-compatible demo application using the innovative SparkFun Thing Plus Matter Development Board and the powerful Simplicity Studio IDE. Additionally, we have some great news, Matt Maupin (Senior Product Marketing Manager, Silicon Labs) will also join to take questions about Matter. This will make the webinar a true 'Matter of Collaboration'!
