Workshop – Home Automation IoT

This hands-on live online 4-hour workshop (+ 1 hour pre-check session) will help attendees explore and simulate a home automation system using the Arduino based Bytes & Bots Innovator Board, IoT, and Web Services.

Participants will create a simple host using a cloud based web service to connect to the Bytes & Bots Innovator board. The cloud based server will use MQTT to transfer data to the board. The UI will be in HTML and the backend will be served by python.

Upon successful completion of the workshop the participants will be able to demonstrate a simulated home automation system.

Upon Successful Completion the workshop attendees will:

  • Be familiar with Arduino and Arduino C language
  • Have a basic understanding of microcontrollers, input/output and programming vocabulary
  • Understand Server requests using MQTT and IoT
  • Have a basic understanding of electronics

Those who successfully complete the workshop and demonstrate their working project will earn a Bytes & Bots Skills Badge.
