The buzzword for the past couple of years has been IoT, and major corporations have been quick to jump upon the bandwagon. For software giants like Microsoft, Google and IBM, the logical step forward was creation of Platforms as a Service or PaaS. If this term seems like unintelligible technical jargon, think Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, Google Analytics and IBM BlueMix.
If Amazon and Microsoft can do it, why can’t we?
So this project will be showing you how to design your own platform as a service based on your Raspberry Pi. This system will allow you to stream sensor data over WiFi and log it in a database on the Raspberry Pi. You will also have a GUI which will display current values of the sensors and also plot a graph of those values when you click a button.
