Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: March 2015
Run time: 4 hours 6 minutes

In this Introduction to IoT Programming with JavaScript training course, expert author Patrick Catanzariti will teach you how to create interactions with connected devices and dashboards. This course is designed for users that already have experience with web development, JavaScript, and Node.

You will start by learning how to build your first dashboard, including setting up a modular Node server and getting your server onto the web. From there, Patrick will show you how to set up an Arduino, display Arduino data, and go wireless with Arduino Yun and node-serialport. This video tutorial also covers Spark, Tessel, pairing Android and JavaScript using on{X}, and voice recognition with Wit.ai. Finally, you will learn how to control your dashboard with new input devices, and learn about Pebble Watch dev.

Once you have completed this computer based training course, you will be fully capable of creating your own web dashboard to display Internet of Things data. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.

Comments about oreilly Introduction to IoT Programming with JavaScript:

I liked how he showed using our own server to manage the messages. And the overview of some current connected devices and technologies was great too.

It would have been nice to show how to generate testing data from the Arduino for those unfamiliar or without a lot of components. Also, maybe more on load testing the node server.

Some information on making charts too would have been nice to show more than just the current state of things.

For a complete beginner, maybe highlight some cloud solutions for collecting your data. Also the Pebble C code was a bit much for me but interesting to see.

    Comments about oreilly Introduction to IoT Programming with JavaScript:

    There's something for everyone. You can do the course with one of the technologies (Arduino, Spark etc.) or all of them. All the material is easy to understand and useful. Common functions like sensing and controlling light, sound and temperature are covered. It's basically worth it. If you want to start working with IoT this is a great intro.
