If you are interested in Internet of Things projects, this tutorial is a simple and very practical way to get started. The Electric Imp platform was created specifically for Internet of Things devices, and measuring temperature is a great way to learn.
In this tutorial, we will be connecting an Electric Imp to the Adafruit MAX31855 Thermocouple Amplifier breakout board using one of the Serial Peripheral Interface Buses (SPI) available on the Electric Imp. Then we will connect a K-type thermocouple, and send the data to Xively and Twitter.
