IoT Workshop – Get Started with the Open Internet of Things – September 14, 2016

The Internet of Things (IoT) opens up a new world of possibilities and opportunities. This workshop will give you hands-on experience programming and configuring a device with a sensor that communicates over a LoRa network, then building a simple application to read back and display the data.  Harness the power of open technologies to build an end-to-end hello world application!

NOTE: To sign up for this workshop, go to

ALSO NOTE:’ You need to bring your laptop to this workshop.

This workshop is open to all levels, and will include introductions to the technologies involved such as MQTT, the defacto IoT standard for data exchange and LoRa, the long range low power technology designed for the Internet of Things.  We will be using Arduino boards to connect to a luminance sensor to provide data.  Attendees are also welcome to bring their own sensors to make a custom application.

Example applications that can be built in 2 hours:

– Send push notification when a bike is moved while it is locked 
– Monitor trashcans and display

levels on a map 
– Monitor parking space and show directions to nearest free space


This workshop will be run in conjunction with:

– Eclipse Foundation ( and 
Things Network (

The Eclipse Foundation accelerates development of IoT stacks using open source technology.

The Things Network is on a mission to build an open, crowd sourced and decentralized data network using LoRaWAN.

Thanks to Intel for sponsoring this event.
Weaverworks and Redmonk are sponsors of this workshop (as well as other COED:CODE events).
