Mozilla Project Things Workshop
Come learn about Mozilla’s Project Things initiative. It is an open source implementation aimed at promoting a decentralized, and W3C-standardized, Web of Things framework for managing IoT device data. Mozilla’s implementation puts people first, protecting user privacy and security, while promoting industry interoperability. Objectives: Attendees will learn how to set up a private IoT gateway, and how to to program MCU hardware by following an online tutorial, that takes advantage of open source “webthing” libraries. Prerequisites: No prior developer skills are necessary. Bring a laptop (any OS). Attendees will be provided with a developer board that they can program during the workshop, and continue to use later by following an online tutorial. Prototyping hardware is generally low cost, and readily available.
