A Gopher in my Pi? Why the Go language is great to program small devices

A session at IoT Tech Day 2016

Thursday 14th April, 2016

11:40am to 12:25pm (AMT)

Join me in this session to see how to use the Go language to program small devices - Raspberry Pi and the like. I'll discuss why it may be a good choice for your IoT projects, and on what hardware Go will run (and why on some it won't). As not everyone may be familiar with Go, a short introduction to the language is given. Next I will show Go code to read sensor data, communicate over the network using MQTT, and control a small water pump. Last but not least you will see a live demo of how I managed make plants survive the harsh environment of my home! This talk will focus on how to actually make something like this, so it will include live coding and some DIY components.
