It is a privilege to welcome to Liverpool Pete Gallagher presenting a topic on IoT with nothing but your Laptop
Pete Gallagher is a Freelance Programmer and owner of PJG Creations Ltd. As well as being a happy programmer in just about every language, he also runs Notts IoT, co-organises Dot Net Notts, Notts Dev Workshop and sits on the board of LATi. Pete is also an active STEM Ambassador and Code Club Volunteer, and enjoys helping and encouraging young people into Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics subjects.
Although the cost of IoT hardware has reduced dramatically over the last few years, you still need to choose the right IoT option, figure out what accessories it needs, order it all from Amazon and wait for it to arrive. By that point, you’ve moved on to something else entirely, so it sits in a cupboard drawer for a year and a half before you get back around to thinking about it…. Then you realise that you need some components and wires… Back in the drawer it goes!
With the advent of HTML 5, so comes the ability to simulate a lot of IoT Kit right there in your web browser. Pete will take you through a few online simulators for IoT technology, which will give you a head start into the world of IoT. This way you can forgo all the procrastinating, and get to (virtually) creating!
