IoT with nothing but your laptop
Talk by Peter Gallagher in Track 1 (20 minutes)

Although the cost of loT hardware has reduced dramatically over the last few years, you still need to choose the right loT option, figure out what accessories it needs, order it all from Amazon and wait for it to arrive. By that point, you've moved on to something else entirely, so it sits in a cupboard drawer for a year and a half before you get back around to thinking about it.... Then you realize that you need some components and wires... Back in the drawer, it goes! With the advent of HTML 5, so comes the ability to simulate a lot of loT Kit right there in your web browser. Pete Gallagher will take you through a few online simulators for loT technology, which will give you a head start into the world of loT. This way you can forgo all the procrastinating, and get to (virtually) creating!
