IoT and U can 2, Part 2

  • The eFactory 405 North Jefferson Avenue Springfield, MO, 65806 United States (map)

The final in a two-part series demonstrating how quick and easy IoT projects can be, this presentation will focus on remotely influencing the temperature of an environment. In it we’ll connect the Raspberry Pi to a heat source. We’ll then use the heat source and temperature sensor to maintain a consistent temperature that is set via the Flask+MongoDB API.

In this presentation you’ll learn:

• Building a simple circuit for controlling external appliances

• Basic GPIO on the Raspberry Pi

• POSTing data to a Flask web page

• Connecting it all with Python

You can view project progress on GitHub

Chad has over 15 years of professional software development experience. He's active in the local Python and .NET developer communities and currently the Director of Business Intelligence at Gravitate Solutions (formerly Old Town IT.)
