IoT Boot Camp – From Arduino to any programming language

On the 6th February Embarcadero is running a free developer IoT boot camp, specifically looking at making some cool IoT devices and then building a network of connected devices using ThingPoints™ with RAD Server™.

During the boot camp you will learn how to work and build IoT Devices using Arduino maker boards and integrate them (along with another 50+ IoT device that RAD Studio IDE includes components for) into a RESTful middle-tier that can be accessed via any leading development language easily.

Day 1 – Building an IoT device with Arduino Day 2 – Programmatically controlling your IoT device Day 3 – Building a centrally managed distributed IoT network Day 4 – Connecting to the IoT network with multiple development languages

Options for coding along at home

While not necessary, you will get more out of the Boot Camp if you can follow along at home.

On day 1, you will go over the steps to make a IoT board using Visuino  (who have teamed up with the guys at Maker Fabs to create a hardware kit you can order in).

On day 2 you can connect to an IoT device component from the list of 50+ components available in the GetIt package Manager. (not on the latest RAD Studio? Download the trial to explore the options.)

On day 3 Connect to and use the IoT devices via REST as we establish the devices into a self managed network of IoT devices that allows device discovery – This will use RAD Server.

On day 4 you can see how to consume the REST Server from any leading programming language by using YAML and SwaggerUI via RAD Server.

*Boot Camp will use RAD Studio 10.1.2 Berlin Enterprise.  You will need  Delphi, C++ or RAD Studio Enterprise license on you machine for boot camp. If you already have 10.1 Berlin Starter or Professional installed, you may want to use a VM to run the trial (or you can upgrade now – check out the latest offers that include FREE RAD Server licenses
