9:45am to 11:00am
Session Level: 100
Want to experiment with this whole iot "fad" without laying out a lot of cash? Using a $10 iot gizmo (one of these doohickies: https://www.adafruit.com/product...), free cloud services, we'll whip up some code to send/receive data in a few (practical?) examples. Internet enabled light switches, remote garage door checks, and the always popular what-temperature-is-it-in-the-chicken-coop will be among the attractions.
We'll also talk briefly about when this isn't always a good idea. (hacking an internet-enabled garage door opener, anyone?)
Code will be the focus, but hardware will be covered very briefly. (other HW options & pointers to hardware tutorials).
automation coding with only a *little* duct tape, epoxy, and string...
