IOT With Raspberry Pi using JAVA


This post features videos that I published to my YouTube channel in the series “IOT with Raspberry Pi “. This basically contains 4 videos around raspberry pi that show how to use Raspberry Pi as an IOT device. It starts from interfacing sensor to publishing the sensor data to cloud server using protocols like REST or MQTT. For the entire project I have used JAVA and on top of that used various libraries for specific tasks like Pi4J, Unirest, Eclipse PAHO etc (Links provided below). If you have watched any of the videos you…
