Workshop: Getting Started with Building Your First IoT App

Webinar Date: 2021-09-09 08:00:00 (Pacific Time)

Building your first IoT app or seeking a more efficient way to build your next one? Don’t miss this free 2-hour IoT App workshop. The workshop showcases a fully functional sample application called IoT Center and built on InfluxDB. With functions such as new IoT device registration, IoT device emulation through an embedded Virtual Device and device data visualization, IoT Center packs a punch. This demo application — based on Node.js and React — uses Kafka to write measurements and requires no DB installation with InfluxDB Cloud.

IoT Center demonstrates InfluxDB platform’s capabilities to develop a JavaScript-enabled, time-series-based application. It collects, stores and displays a set of values that include temperature, humidity, pressure, CO2 concentration, air quality, as well as provides GPS coordinates from a set of IoT devices (sensors). With this data stored in InfluxDB, the application can query it for display as well as write data back into the database. Figuring out data ingestion, collection, storage and visualization is half the battle when building an IoT app — these are all challenges solved by the solution presented in this workshop:

  • Learn how to install this open source code (IoT Center) to learn how to query and write to InfluxDB using the InfluxDB JavaScript client
  • Gain familiarity with Flux lang, which is designed for querying, analyzing, and acting on time series data
  • Collect and visualize performance data of the Node.js application
  • Stream time series data to your application using RabbitMQ or Kafka queues and InfluxDB

Space is limited, so register soon to take advantage of this free 2-hour IoT workshop.
