Let’s mashup the web and the real world

A session at Front-Trends 2015

Friday 8th May, 2015

2:20pm to 2:55pm (WMT)

Increasingly we are seeing the trend of hooking up sensors and electronics to the Internet. As sensors and hardware platforms become more available for hobbyists, web developers can also have fun with the real world by triggering and sensing.

In this talk, we will cover how we can utilise the plenty of sensors already embedded in our mobile phones, to different wireless protocols such as the WiFi or Bluetooth Low Energy as well as some low power devices. Then we will hook them up to a display or trigger them with various web technologies right in our browser.

If you are looking to start playing with hardware and web technologies, this talk will give you an overview of common hardware platforms, javascript libraries, as well as beginners’ sensors. And yes, audience participation will be required in this talk, so let’s have some fun!
