Science Makers - DIY and open hardware for science and education

You have built sensor devices before but what to do with the data?


This session will dive into building apps to host your data on the web and talk to Arduino boards from your own interface - the use case will be venus flytrap signals measured.

Learn how to

  • talk to an Arduino from an interface
  • plot data in real time
  • store and publish data on a server
