-- Using Machinechat's Innovative Software, Raspberry Pi Users Can Now Monitor Anything in Minutes --

January 8, 2020 - San Jose, CA - Machinechat, a provider of easy-to-use, innovative IoT data management solutions, today announced the launch of its first Monitoring in Minutes Contest for Raspberry Pi enthusiasts and developers.

"This past holiday season, many technology enthusiasts received a Raspberry Pi as a gift or bought one for themselves," said E.E. Wang, chief marketing officer for Machinechat. "Sadly, despite the growing popularity of Raspberry Pi among developers and inventors, many of these kits will be relegated to collecting dust in a closet or hobby room due to the complexity in time and resources required to build easy-to-use GUI-based software applications to power their projects."


Wang continued: "With the launch of our Machinechat JEDI One for Raspberry Pi software and our Monitoring in Minutes contest, Machinechat wants to show users that they no longer have to spend hours to write code or embed APIs just to create a powerful IoT data monitoring solution with a beautiful user interface for their application. Using our JEDI One solution, developers can now incorporate production-ready data monitoring and management features in minutes with a single all-in-one solution. This allows developers to focus more time on their application idea and outcomes - and less on programming how to collect, present and monitor the data."



To register for the contest, users should go to and download a free copy of the Machinechat JEDI One Raspberry Pi edition software. A premium version is also available for a one-time cost of $39. Purchase of the premium version of Machinechat JEDI One is not required to participate in the contest.


Contest users can then send screenshots or videos of their JEDI-enabled Raspberry Pi to or post on Twitter with the hashtags #IoTinMinutes and #MachinechatJEDI by no later than January 31, 2020 11:59PM Pacific Standard Time.


Winners will be announced on February 10, 2020 and will each receive $100 in Amazon or Visa giftcards.
