These days, IoT solutions mostly consist of a bunch of sensors and controls connected to the internet. Once there, the sky is the limit, thanks to the power of the cloud. A great starting point for anyone looking to dive into this field is AWS. Its platform contains a lot of managed services and frameworks for integrating hardware into complex serverless solutions. Following well documented best practices, getting your IoT innovation flywheel spinning is as easy as 1-2-3. And it costs you next to nothing!
During this talk, Rachid will walk you through every step of the engineering process using a WiFi connected ESP32 that will be the center of a serious game demonstration. Once provisioned and securely connected, devices will start delivering their data and receiving commands from clients at the other end of the internet. Taking an event-driven approach, the serverless backend delivers a tremendous amount of power while being surprisingly simple to understand and maintain. And the best part: most of this is done writing hardly any code.
After this talk you:
- learned how to connect hardware to the cloud.
- got an overview of AWS IoT services.
- can design an IoT application using the AWS IoT Lens.
- know the power of thinking serverless!
