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! 👨🏫 About the speaker: 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. https://www.linkedin.com/in/pjgcreations/ https://twitter.com/pete_codes
We'll have a fairly relaxed agenda, but will follow: - 👋 Introduction / Housekeeping - 🗣️ Round table introductions - 👨🏫 Air Quality, Azure Functions and Spider Eggs with Rob Miles - 🎉 Closing - 🍻 Social 👉 Air Quality, Azure Functions and Spider Eggs Good quality air is important. After all, everyone breathes. But dig a little deeper into the subject and most of what you find is what we don't know. Is air pollution produced by local traffic? Does it waft in on the breeze? Are there times when I really shouldn't go out for a run? In this talk I'll describe how you can build your own connected air quality sensor and get data from it. I'll touch on embedded devices the MQTT protocol, LoRa networking, Azure IoT Hub and Azure Functions, along with our Connected Humber effort to spread sensors over Humberside. And I'll even mention spider eggs and show off my "Air Quality Top Hat". 👨🏫 About the speaker: Rob Miles has spent over 30 years teaching programming to a succession of students at the University of Hull in the UK. He’s a Microsoft MVP with a passion for programming, C# and creating new things. He's written a few books over the years, and coloured in a lot more. If he had any spare time he’d spend it writing even more code. He loves making programs and then running them to see what happens. He reckons that programming is the most creative thing you can learn how to do. Having worked with many languages and platforms over the years he now likes nothing more than writing C# using Visual Studio, preferably for a small device of some kind. If there are motors and lights involved, so much the better. He claims to know a lot of really good jokes, but nobody has ever heard him tell one.
