DIY IoT Article in windows.developer Magazine

May 7, 2019

For the current issue of windows.developer magazine I wrote an article about building a custom IoT button, calling web services and APIs from it and visualizing those events.

The articles in windows.developer magazine are written in German, so apologies to my non-German-speaking friends and followers.

The article shows how to:

  • Create a custom IoT button device from scratch from a hardware perspective.
  • How to programming the IoT device using the Arduino IDE.
  • Call Web APIs from the IoT device.
  • Use the ThingSpeak platform to quickly visualize IoT data.

Also, make sure to check out my other writing in case your are interested.
