Javascript Rules My Life (remix)

Lord Somers Camp, Victoria

It’s never been easier to do home and offfice automation with inexpensive IoT devices, and it’s now possible in 100% JavaScript, from wall to cloud.

This presentation explains how to use the ESP8266 and ESP32 microcontollers, MongooseOS, Amazon IoT and Amazon Lambda to hook physical devices to your phone or to your slack channels.

For example:

  • Voice control your lights.
  • Send notifications to phone or slack on events like kettle boiled or toast ready.
  • Make a visual “away board” that responds to team presence.
  • Build “traffic light” status monitors for your CI.

I will teach you how to get started with no soldering, 100% JavaScript, and as little as ten bucks (around thirty for a truly kickass setup).
