Makilo Workshop: Rapid Prototyping with ChatGPT (Part 2)

Makilo Workshop: Rapid Prototyping with ChatGPT (Part 2)

After the success of last month’s workshop around the highs and lows of rapid prototyping using Generative AI, we’re back with part two!

After a productive 3 hours of beer, pizza and questioning career choices based on the quality of AI-generated code, workshop attendees produced an initial application capable of finding and interacting with some Bluetooth Low Energy Beacon Technology (kindly provided by Lawrence Archard ). Breakout teams included mobile app development led by Richard Leggett, mobile interface design and build for displaying sensor data, web API for serving content, and even getting some AI-Generated content for the use cases we all discussed mocked up and ready to go!

Part 2 – Will be about how these same prototyping tools can now take users from those ‘bare bones’ of an idea towards something ready for deployment!

If you came along last time and still find generative AI tools fascinating, you’re curious about how tools like ChatGPT and GitHub Copilot can streamline the prototyping process… or maybe you just felt you missed out, then please reserve your ticket today! We’re hosting the next Hack Evening at our studio in Linford Wood, Milton Keynes!

What can you expect from Makilo’s Hack Evening?

  • Hands-on experience using ChatGPT and Copilot for rapid prototyping
  • Developing a prototype mobile app interacting with BLE Beacons, designed for iOS and Android
  • Networking opportunities with tech enthusiasts, innovators, and AI tool users
  • Of course, there will be food and drink!

Why should you attend?

  • Immerse yourself in the power of generative AI tools in rapid prototyping
  • Gain practical experience in application development for BLE Beacon interaction
  • Collaborate with like-minded individuals in a stimulating environment
  • Broaden your knowledge and enhance your tech skill set

I’m not a coder; should I attend?

Of course! Part one had plenty of non-coders bringing a different perspective to the process; Makilo workshops focus on supporting the shared interest of attendees – no obligation to ‘do’ anything
but you’d be surprised how quickly you’ll find ways to get involved at a hack event.
