Trying to create simple communication between computers, apis and hardware doesn't have to be a programing nightmare. Thats where Node-RED comes in. Node-RED is a node-based programming tool for wiring together hardware devices, APIs and online services in new and interesting ways. It provides a browser-based editor that makes it easy to learn and even easier to be creative with. In this workshop students will learn how to simplify communication with hardware devices using a ESP32 Wireless Microcontroller, manage data streams with MQTT and explore new ways to connect sensors and LEDs to create interactive installations.
Parts Included with ticket
ESP32 (a low cost microcontroller with wifi and bluetooth)
