It's been way too long, but the next in the series of IoT
"Build-along-at-home" videos is done. In this edition I will show you the
"Hello World" project for interacting with the IO ports on your Raspberry Pi.
Please click here to watch the video and as always, comments and questions
are appreciated and welcomed!
Watch the video on YouTube here if you prefer!
Also, it is in the video, but my GitHub library of code for all the projects
we will be doing in the video series can be found here:
Git Hub Repository
If you are the type (like me) who just likes to figure stuff out on their
own, I have heavily commented the code for you so you can get started quickly
without the video, but it will help you with the hardware assemblies! Also I
am already working on the next projects, using the moisture sensor (the
original project), and another future project using a sound sen... (more)
Part 3 of my IoT series is finally here, and it's like Christmas in more ways
than one! I have decided to move to video for my updates for the series, and
the first video entry is ready. We will be looking at the kit I purchased to
build my IoT rig at home, and show you the parts you need to get started on
yours if you are interested. Enjoy the video!
As always, your comments and questions are welcome below or on twitter.

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past couple of years, you've
been hearing about the world of Big Data nonstop. Big Data promises fortune
and power to those that can wield the somewhat mystical and often nebulous
power of "Big Data". Unfortunately for the rest of us mere mortals Big Data
is built on an out-right lie that is both pernicious and unfortunate. It's
hiding right there in plain sight in the name itself. The word, BIG.
The Fallacy of Big Data is that you have to have a lot of data for it to be
relevant. The common catch phrase is: "More data = more insights... (more)
Welcome back to our series on building out our own IoT projects and
discovering the underlying tech and principals that make up the industrial
internet and IoT. In this video session we will assemble, boot, and
configure our Raspberry Pi 3 and lay the foundation of all the IoT projects
we will build.
You can view the video on my YouTube Channel here.
I wanted to add a couple of things I learned after recording, that didn't
make it into this video but should have. After you get your Raspberry Pi
running, the first thing you should do is open the terminal window, and
execute the... (more)
About 6 months ago I had this "brilliant" idea that I would like to monitor
the water level of my plants living on my balcony. The goal was to keep them
healthy and happy (and producing vegetables for me in my urban garden). After
looking for a commercial solution to aid me in this project, I discovered
that there wasn't anything out there that would do what I need. The primary
reason why nothing worked for me was that none of the products out there are
capable of monitoring multiple plants at once, leaving me with the need to
buy multiple units. At 10-15 containers for plants, ... (more)
