About 40 people attended with a wide variety of profiles (academia, industry, public services, end users). We had very interesting discussions about the expected impact for the project and for the city of València, about possible extensions to other application domains, data privacy protection, and so on. Stay tuned for exciting results in a few months’ time!

Sept. 18-20th 2018: Project boot camp
The FogGuru Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) have now arrived so we organized an amazing Boot Camp to get them started. The Boot camp gathered all FogGuru’s Early Stage Researchers, their supervisors and the project’s partners around technical and soft skills sessions as well as team building and social events, such as visiting the Mont Saint Michel.
It gave the ESRs the opportunity not only to present their PhD’s subject and get to know each other, but also to attend technical sessions about fog computing, cloud resource management and stream processing, a 2-hours workshop on the Business Model Canvas, time management and how to pitch anything.
ESRs were divided in 2 groups to participate to a team building exercise, which consisted in pitching an imaginary but very inventive Fog-aware banana case and a goldfish stroller, in front of a jury. The jury decided to award both teams for their pitches since both of them were very convincing!
