Easy get started with IoT 

Workshop14:15-16:156th Floor c

So you have read all the articles and seen all the video’s, maybe even attended a talk about IoT but now you really want to get started with IoT yourself, yeah.

Everything is easier once you have seen it done before. And most things get easier once someone lined up the basic steps for you. And that’s exactly what we will do. In a short presentation we will outline the all the basic aspects to consider when planning your project: Things such as what to measure with a device, networks to connect through, ways to process the data and how to consume it. We’ll talk about the IoT platforms to support you, and how to align them. Next we will have some devices available to play with, and we’ll split up in small groups to get them going in the practical part of the workshop.

You will walk away with a clear plan, consisting of steps to take and what to consider to get you going with your IoT project.
