Bit Banging and Other Fun Programming at the Edge

An introduction to sensors, microcontrollers and how they fit into the larger context of the Internet of Things (IoT). This session will include an overview of the various sensors and outputs that are available. We’ll spend a good amount of time talking about what microcontrollers are, how programming them differs from desktop/web programming and how they are used to connect to sensors and networks. The second half will be spent looking at actual code from several examples using the Arduino platform.
