237: IoT: Open My Garage Door with RPG

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

IoT is a big deal in IT today. Since RPG can call and host REST APIs, you can integrate it with IoT devices. For my first project, I decided to see if I could use RPG's "open" and "close" opcodes to open and close my garage door -- and it worked!

In this session I will show you how I integrated my RPG program with the Raspberry Pi, and talk about how the Raspberry Pi and similar devices can play a big part in the future of business applications.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn the basic concept of Raspberry Pi (and other single-board computers)
2. Learn why physical computing and IoT are important.
3. Learn about integrating IoT with RPG programs.
