      Introduction to The Internet of Things for UVic Libraries' DSC - October 23, 2019

      From self-adjusting thermostats to pet feeders that calculate and track your pet's nutritional needs, the Internet of Things may sound futuristic, but it is quickly becoming reality. In this workshop, we will explore ways to control basic electronics remotely from a laptop or smartphone. We'll even learn how to make a Weasley Whereabouts Clock! If you do not have any prior experience working with Arduino (or basic programming and electronics), we recommend you attend our Introduction to Arduino workshop first. Please complete the pre-workshop instructions for software and creating accounts. It will make the workshop go more smoothly! Please review this web page to get a sense for the types of projects one can make with an Internet of Things card: https://hackaday.io/projects?tag=ESP8266  Download and install Arduino IDE software for your laptop: http://bit.ly/2LIKN2A    Go to https://io.adafruit.com  and create an account.
