Time to get super technical and tell you about how Tome allows all of their engineers to build on wild IoT projects once a month. I spent two sessions building a system for a fully connected coffee roast that logged and visualized aspects of the roaster. GOOOOOONNNGGGGG, lab days and food, what more do you need?
Working in Start Garden’s co-working space, I met so many amazing people with such great ideas. One of the main perks of working at Start Garden is being exposed to the entrepreneurial ecosystem they are building within West Michigan. This network of doers, thinkers, makers is so embedded within the community. I'm still figuring out how I can remain part of this network despite moving back to Ann Arbor.
Prepping for my first day of work, I remember feeling both nervous and excited on Sunday night. Now that the first week of work is over, I can confidently say that working at Start Garden is an incredible opportunity for me to learn about the Smart City initiative and IoT. Grand Rapids will be the perfect place to live for the next eight weeks.
