Internet Of Things using Raspberry Pi


Internet of Things, or IoT in short, is the idea of making devices and objects smarter by linking them to the internet.
This workshop introduces you to the amazing world of IoT and its fascinating applications. Using a Raspberry Pi computer and a DHT sensor, you will develop an electronic device that streams temperature and humidity data over the internet. You can program the system in such a way that say whenever the temperature exceeds a certain limit, the device will automatically send an email notification!
