As we all are developing the billions of devices — the "things" of the Internet of Things — we find we still need to communicate with these devices. There are current paths to make interfaces that can work with existing interfaces on computers and phones, most notably web browsers. But what about writing a custom app for phones and tablets to interface with your IoT system? Many embedded systems programmers have found the interfaces and java structures awkward to learn, often using some of the "quick and easy" app generators that tend to be expensive and limited. Join us for a fast-paced class on how to use the free tools provided by Google to develop your own Android app. This class will cover the setup of the programming environment, writing a simple "hello world" app, then writing an app that can talk to our IoT devices. We will look at direct IPv6 packets, Bluetooth, and NFC and their advantages and disadvantages.
