The Internet of Things (IoT) is fundamentally changing how we interact with the digital world. In this talk, we’ll explore the implementation of live examples which bridge the gap between the physical and digital world using PHP: asking Alexa for information on php[world] conference sessions; displaying API data on an Arduino-powered display; using PHP to control LEDs on a Raspberry Pi to monitor application uptime; and connecting IR sensors to Slack to see whether a conference room is in use.

Would love a bit more details on hardware cost/detail as digital reference to be able to look back on when fiddling with stuff weeks later and trying to remember the gotchas.

A wide range of examples using PHP for IoT. A great beginner overview of how to do IoT in PHP.

This talk included a good amount of impressive demo's to demonstrated the power of IoT. The speaker could explain how everything worked behind the scenes in a clear way and was clearly very enthusiastic about the subject. Well done!

Great overall presentation of several practical applications. Colin was able to explain pretty much every detail of how the components come together. Also, the projects are simple enough that they can also act as boilerplates for other projects using similar components. Very cool and makes me want to run right out and buy so Pis and Arduino boards and build stuff.
