Internet of things
Overview

The Internet of Things (IoT) is about connecting real world objects and events to
each other using the Internet. Have you ever wondered how smart (connected)
LED light bulbs, thermostats, locks, and switches work? Designed for hobbyists
and makers who are curious about electronics, Arduino's, or Raspberry Pi's. You
will discover how tiny computers, sensors, networks, and software are used to
create IoT devices. Connected devices are around us everywhere already and
soon there will be more than 50 billion IoT devices in the world by 2020. Find out
how they work and build your own devices that connect things to the Internet.
