This intermediate level Arduino class guides you through creating your first internet-connected electronics projects using a wifi breakout board. Learn the elaborate workflow of hardware and software that makes smart objects succeed through basic step-by-step examples of the most common things you want to build: a sensor that triggers an email (or tweet, etc.), a circuit that displays info fetched from online, and how to combine sample code to build your own project ideas.
Whether you're a software engineer just dipping a toe into hardware, or a novice who just finished the introductory Arduino Class, this class will give you the skills to realize the IoT projects of your dreams. You'll explore cloud services to quickly and easily link your DIY circuits up with other IoT devices, social media sites, and more.
