Bouvet as Partner

As a partner with javaBin (the Norwegian JUG and organisers behind JavaZone) Bouvet had a stand in the Expo area.  Here we were able to show off our IoT Motivation Machine, along with a couple of Raspberry Pi Retro games consoles we had put together.

In addition to receiving giveaways, visitors to our stand could enter a competition to win one of five Raspberry Pi games consoles just like the ones we displayed on our stand.

javaBin - The organisers of JavaZone

JavaZone is primarily organised by javaBin - The Norwegian JUG.  This consists of volunteers who contribute their time and energy to making JavaZone happen. This year three Bouvet employees (Gareth Western, Jan Erik Robertson and myself) were involved in various areas of JavaZone, including the program committee.  If you are interested in helping out with JavaZone 2017, take contact with javaBin to find out how you can contribute!
