Developing IOT and Smart Devices at Scale with the Cloud

Emerging Technology

Tara E. Walker

The rise of IOT and Smart Devices in the marketplace has increased significantly. Basic IoT devices are now widely available and reasonably affordable in today’s market. Creating an IoT solution or data backend for your IoT device can be daunting as there are several of options noted for use in creating a backend or solution.
This session will cover how to develop secure, scalable, IoT cross-device solutions with Node.js IoT frameworks like Johnny Five as well as, building data backend for your IoT and Smart Devices with the Cloud.

The session will include a demo using an IoT device with a Amazon Web Services cloud backend as an example of how to leverage services such as Lambda, DynamoDB, AWS IoT, and API Gateway to build a working and scalable IoT cross-device solution. Additionally, we will discuss how to write a cloud based API service for accessing and consuming data to/from your backend to IoT devices like Intel Edison, Raspberry Pi, and Arduino, as well as, how to connect and control the device by developing a mobile device companion.

The concepts and best practices of building IoT solutions with cloud backends that will be discussed can apply in any given scenario and with varying technologies.
