This is the companion workshop for my IoT prototyping talk. This site and links to resources to help you get started with your NodeBots hacking.
This workshop focuses on exploration, so it’s not very structured. Here’s a rough schedule of what we’ll be doing.
This workshop is a bit of a ‘choose your own adventure’. Use these modules to hack at your own pace. If the venue allows, I’ll also walk through a couple scenarios live during the robot building time.
The videos run for 15 to 20 minutes. If the pace is too slow, check out the Video Speed Plugin for Chrome.
Follow these tutorials to get started. These tutorials mirror the getting started talk.
This is where the workshop goes nonlinear. Peek at a couple of these video modules if they spark your interest.
Once you’re done with those, check out these example pages for stuff in your NodeBot kit and the community parts pile:
Then the rest is up to you. Come up with a project to prototype, cut up some cardboard, and get building!
Here are some tutorial modules that focus around deploying your code to a Raspberry Pi so your creation can be small and wireless. This isn’t core to the workshop, but I have a few Pi handy if you’d like to go wireless.
The source code lives on GitHub.
