If you have an environmental sensor set up in your home, office, farm etc and want to check the temperature, you don’t want to have to physically go out and do a sensor reading every time.
Developing with the Internet of Things is fun. It’s challenging. It’s frustrating at times.
But it’s also an opportunity to change the world with code! And you don’t need 5 years R&D or an engineering degree to do it. In this blog I’ll go through some quick weekend hackathon projects you can put together to bring your IoT idea to life.
Consider that the Internet of Things is made up of 3 key elements:
As developers ourselves, we understand that focus is a key to success. We’ve spoken to IoT developers who have told us that the biggest value Telstra provides is the coverage and depth of the network, so we're focusing on that.
That’s why from 15th July 2021 we’ll be retiring the IoT Marketplace on TelstraDev and ending the Developer Kit trial.
Where we've come from...
When TelstraDev launched the IoT Marketplace in 2019, we wanted to make it as easy as possible to get up and running with Telstra’s IoT network.
I want to showcase a project I have been working on to reflect the interesting things you can do with Internet of Things (IoT) and Azure services at home that could be commercialised into an industrialised environment.
Last year we were proud to announce our partnership with Arduino to help create an (read more about it here https://exchange.telstra.com.au/our-exclusive-partnership-with-arduino-set-to-fuel-the-growth-of-iot-in-australia/), IoT network ready, device for developers. For us this partnership is really important to help create an IoT network specific device that is quick and easy to use, while being versatile to prototype with and has a wealth of library support.
