This is a summary post of my exploration of Internet of Things. A small hobby project I have used to learn new technologies slightly outside my comfort zone. My IoT Exploration – Part 1 – The Failure My IoT Exploration – Part 2 – Raspberry Pi Sense HAT My IoT Exploration – Part 3 – Sending Data to Cloud My IoT Exploration – Part 4 – Presenting the Data My IoT Exploration – Part 5 – Costs and Architecture Refection
This is my fourth post about exploring Internet of Things, previous posts can be found here: My IoT Exploration – Part 1 – The Failure My IoT Exploration – Part 2 – Raspberry Pi Sense HAT My IoT Exploration – Part 3 – Sending Data to Cloud For the last piece of this project I pretty much followed the approach described in Visualizing IoT Data with Web App. Since I wanted to learn how to create and deploy Azure Web Apps, this was a good fit.
In part 3 of my IoT exploration I connect my Raspberry Pi to Azure IoT Hub and create a NodeJS app that relays data from my Python program to Azure.
When my desktop application for Facebook Messenger, Messenger for Desktop, wanted me to install an update and I found out that the update wanted to install a web browser extension and otherwise pollute my computer, I uninstalled it. Having a desktop app can sometimes be convenient, even though it has basically the same functionality as the corresponding web interface. So, I googled and found Franz, a desktop messaging app that supports a bunch of messaging services and is available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
