Bring your laptop to this hands-on workshop and learn to get started with a simple, flexible, and cloudless NoT setup (Network of Things, NoT on the internet) made with free and open source software and inexpensive DIY-friendly parts. Example code will be provided, so this will be a gentle introduction to coding for hardware for those who have some experience writing software.
Each participant will make (and take home) a “Thing” consisting of an ESP8266 wifi board running MicroPython and some sensors, buttons, and LEDs.
We’ll network our Things together with MQTT, a stripped-down, easy to understand messaging protocol for communicating between devices and we’ll create logic to automate interaction between our Things with Node Red, a very visual, low-code programming interface. We’ll also use Node Red to create a browser-based dashboard that works with both DIY and commercial IoT devices.
Day 1 of Thingscon 2019 we will shape the future narratives of the responsible IoT and beyond together. You can dive deep with peers, thought leaders, innovators, and researchers from the ThingsCon community and beyond:
Day 2 of Thingscon 2019 is about the current state of the responsible IoT. You can get inspiration from thought leaders and practitioners from the field, get hands-on with the latest tools & insights and be part of the leading discours.To end Thingscon will present a State of the Responsible IoT in 2019:
