How To Build The World’s Largest IoT With Raspberry Pi And Google BigQuery #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Make the worlds’s biggest IoT platform using Raspberry Pi and Google BigQuery. via medium.com
This is my weather station built with RasPi. It took only several hours in my weekend to build this, but it’s already capable of deploying the world’s largest IoT platform. Why? Because it directly sends the metrics to Google BigQuery, the massively parallel query engine from Google Cloud Platform which is able to collect one million rows of metrics every second and execute query on terabytes of data in 10 seconds.
So, you can start deploying millions of this box to collect temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure (or any metrics if you add sensors) from everywhere in the world, right now. I don’t have to do anything more to build a large distributed frond ends, load balancers, app servers and super-fast database cluster with scaling out, fail-over, replication and etc — the complications required to build a large production IoT platform. BigQuery has them all in Google’s largest Datacenter with Google scale and quality.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
