Tonight in NYC: ‘Become an IoT Star’ – Learn to Stream to @IBM’s Watson IoT Using ESP8266 | #NYCDEV #IoT #IoTuesday
If you’re in NYC looking for a community meetup tonight consider ‘Become an IoT Star‘ presented by IBM Code and NYC DEV, hosted at Fat Cat Fab Lab makerspace:
Learn how to connect an ESP8266 to Watson IoT over MQTT and stream environmental data from the sensors to the IBM Cloud. Discussion will include ESP8266 programming, IoT Security, MQTT, Watson IoT Platform, Node-RED, cloud storage, data analytics and visualization techniques.

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.
