Every technology adventure begins with a “Hello World” moment, whether it is getting that first computer program to run, or the first LED to blink, we always start small and build from there. Many of us find excitement and reward in these early first steps… This blog series (“IoT Lab”) goal is to aid in the transition from “Hello World” Internet of Things 101 level accomplishments into topics aspiring IoT innovators will have to understand and master, all the while maintaining as much a hands-on DIY feel as possible.
While most of my research (aka day-job) focuses on aiding organizations to start or improve upon their IoT technical strategies, DIY electronics has been a passion of mine since youth. This seems to a common interest with many folks involved in IoT.
This “IoT Lab” series will try to capture key insights, especially those that are important for a transition from the 101 to 201 level, the transition from experimenting with prepared lab assignments to basic IoT Endpoint design and prototype. There is a tremendous about of information in magazines, books and on YouTube but most of it is focused on early learnings – the getting started stuff. My goal here is to focus on examples and materials that builds a bridge from those early learning to the skills and technology IoT innovators need to get to production.
