IBM Developer Event: Prototyping IoT projects with Raspberry Pi and Node-RED

NYC Blockchain Center and Founding Member IBM Developer Team cohost this series of developer events.

About the Event:

There are endless IoT devices that can be built using Raspberry PI! While it is a lot of fun learning how to program and make interesting projects using the Raspberry pi , it can also be tricky to know how to get started.

One tool that continues to make IoT and industrial solutions easier is Node-RED. Designed and built by IBM, Node-RED is a free, open source logic engine that allows programmers of any level to interconnect physical I/O, cloud-based systems, databases, and API’s. Users interact with Node-RED via a browser-based flow editor that makes multi-device and multi-API integrations as easy as linking together nodes into easily understood flows.

In this talk we are going to explore some interesting projects that can be built using Raspberry PI in a TJ Bot, which is an open source project that is designed to use artificial intelligence services in a fun way! We will be exploring how we can use NodeRED to drive our development of these AI services onto a Robot in a fun and dynamic way.

By the end of this talk you should be able to walk away with:

• Overall understanding of Node-Red

• Creating flows in Node-RED

• Connecting Raspberry Pi with Node-RED

• Prototyping programs with Speech to Text, Text to Speech, Language Translator, Tone Analyzer and Weather Insight Services



6:30pm – check in, pizza, drinks, & networking

7-8pm – presentation

8-8:30pm – Q&A

8:45pm – venue closes


Who is this event for?

This workshop is for both beginners, experienced developers, makers, tech enthusiasts, entrepreneurs and anyone who is interested in rapid prototyping or is just curious about flow-based programming.

This talk is a will be part of a larger Node-RED series called Rapid Prototyping with Node-RED and the overall take away is to show that Node-red is not only powerful, but a fun way to experiment with ideas and applications.
