The Internet of Things (“IoT”) is already all around you and it’s becoming more pervasive by the day. The simplest of everyday things from appliances to parking meters to clothing, are all acquiring ways to communicate with each other and the world. Bluetooth Beacons (“iBeacons”) is one smart little group of devices that started shaking up the world of marketing in 2013. Beacons work to connect the digital world, with the real world. In this session, you’ll learn the fundamentals of this fairly young tech, get a sanity check on the current state of things and get your hands dirty in a fun exercise that could lead you to your first beacons-based project.
