The Internet of Things is the next frontier in emerging technology, and a great union of hands-on projects and computer programming. We’ve put together a collection of resources to help you get started.
The Best Way to Get Started
The best way to get started is by taking our IoT for Educators workshop. This 2-day workshop covers programming connected devices to monitor and interact with the world around them. The workshop includes training and materials to support step-by-step projects that allow youth to interact with and monitor their environment while collecting real-world data. Additionally, everything you need to get started is included in the workshop’s accompanying kit, the IoT Starter Kit.
Introduction to Arduino
Familiarize yourself with these core Arduino skills to prepare for working with IoT projects.
The First Connections
Now that you have an understanding of Arduino, it’s time to build the connection between the hardware and software.
Working with Analog
The next step is to build on the basic connections and integrate analog input and output. These skills are used in a variety of projects, especially anything related to IoT.
Connecting to the Internet
These next articles and projects are where you’ll begin to develop the true power of the Internet of Things as you progress through connecting your Arduino Yun to the internet and work with a variety of smart sensors.
One of the core concepts of the Internet of Things is internet connected devices, particularly sensors and actuators. These are often connected with the intent of collecting and streaming data about your interactions with the world.
