Microsoft's Jeremy Foster will give an introduction to the world of IoT - the Internet of Things. We’ll get definitions for various IoT terms and some bold predictions of the future where the internet is not so much a collection of devices as it is a collection of sensors and gadgets attached to people, vehicles, houses, and a lot more. And we’ll also get the basics of how to write software for these devices using the familiar and rather high level JavaScript language on Node.js. This means that instead of writing difficult code in languages such as C or Wiring, modern IoT hackers can write easy code and have access to the vast number of node modules that already exist. As an example project, you’ll meet Tweet Monkey and see what little it takes to put together your own maker project.
