This month, Vui Nguyen will present for us a personal project that she built. This project is a full-stack IoT system that uses a web client and iOS mobile client to control LED lights on an Intel Edison board. The clients communicate with the board through the local WebSocket server using the Socket.IO libraries for web and iOS. Vui will focus on the Swift code in the iOS mobile app as well as the JavaScript/Node code on the web server side, show how they use their respective Socket.IO libraries to communicate, and discuss the challenges of mixing Swift and JavaScript in the same system.

Vui Nguyen is a long time software developer (15+ years), and has been a mobile developer using Titanium for the last five years. She is now doing native iOS development using Swift and building Internet of Things projects. By the time she gives this presentation, she would have returned from an all expense paid trip to China (Thanks Intel!), where her team is going to demo their IoT project. She will be happy to spend a few minutes talking about her trip before launching into this month's presentation. :)
