Intro to the Internet of Things with Adafruit Feather Huzzah

Intro to the Internet of Things with Adafruit Feather Huzzah In-Person

Note: This workshop is in person only.

The AdaFruit Feather Huzzah board allows you to quickly make a variety of Internet of Things (IoT) projects with little to no programming or electronics experience. The Feather Huzzah connected to sensors can communicate sensor data to cloud-based services (e.g. weather station temperature and humidity data) or receive data from the cloud or directly from you to turn on connected devices (e.g. Twitter re-tweets could trigger a LED light show in your office). The ESP8266 chip that is at the heart of the AdaFruit board is commonly found in IoT devices like:

  • Hobby devices, including weather stations, and holiday light shows
  • Security devices, including surveillance cameras and smart locks
  • Energy devices, including HVACs and thermostats
  • Medical devices, including wearable health monitors

Learning objectives

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  1. Be aware of a range of use cases for Adafruit Feather Huzzah IOT devices
  2. Be able to configure a computer for Feather Huzzah development
  3. Use web services like Adafruit IO and IFTTT to quickly web enable Feather Huzzah projects
  4. Use a Feather Huzzah to send information to web services to perform an action on the web
  5. Use web services to send information to a Feather Huzzah to perform a local action

No programming experience is required for this workshop, but you will get a sense for the types of problems that Arduino devices can help you solve.
