Internet of Things: Connect the Hardware to the Cloud

This workshop discusses IoT dimensions in general and hardware in particular. After introducing existing IoT hardware, we dive further and discuss the ESP8266 IoT hardware (aka arduino killer) in detail, showing how to program this microchip using the Arduino IDE. We are interested in conveying sensors data to the cloud and visualizing them there. We also show how to control actuators remotely using the cloud. The kit will be shown to participants, who will also be taught about the application of such technology in several industries.
