This session will be split between a talk and a hands-on lab so make sure you bring a laptop!
We'll have a fairly relaxed agenda, but will follow:
- 👋 Introduction / Housekeeping
- 🗣️ Round table introductions
- 👨🏫 IoT with nothing but your Laptop with Pete Gallagher
- 🎉 Closing
- 🍻 Social
👉 IoT with nothing but your Laptop
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!
