In this workshop you’ll get a hands on experience with the protocols that power IoT. Chances are that you already know a few of them. If you’re curious about IoT and you’re looking for a way to get in, then this workshop is the perfect gateway. It doesn’t matter if you have no plans to work in IoT. Knowing these protocols will make you a better developer, for there’s bound to be occasions in your work when they might come in handy.

We’ll use the development board, based on the ESP8266 micro controller and WiFi chip, for running the code examples. You only need a laptop we provide everything else.
