From now until Dec 8, I’ll be throwing a spotlight on a few ITP16 sessions that I’m planning to attend. There are a lot of choices and the presenters are all subject-matter experts so you can’t go wrong whatever you choose. You’re sure to come away with a spark of knowledge that will launch you into the coming new year.
Build Your Own IoT Infrastructure Using Low Cost Devices and the Public Cloud – A Practical Tutorial
Start Time: 12/08/2016 02:00 PM, End Time: 12/08/2016 02:45 PM, Location: IoT Salon
Session Level: Intermediate
Target Audience: This session is for anyone interested in using low-cost hardware and public cloud infrastructure to build IoT devices
Session Summary: It seems that IoT is everywhere these days. Depending on who you ask, it serves a different purpose. This session will cover a low-cost, build-your-own platform using the Expressif ESP8266 microcontroller to instrument, monitor and gather data on your surrounding environment. You will be introduced to the ESP8266’s capabilities, the Arduino based IDE that can be used to easily program it, and examples of how to monitor the surrounding temperature, humidity, light and similar metrics. You will also be shown how easy it is to stream these metrics to a variety of cloud IoT infrastructures such as Amazon Web Services and Azure or your own private data warehouse.
