You have your devices, you have your Cloud application, and you even have your client, but to get it all connected you need a protocol that can handle getting all of the pieces to talk. This workshop takes you through the Internet of Things platform and connecting devices through a central hub for managing events in a multitude of programming languages. You will be introduced to Watson Internet of Things concepts and the MQTT publish and subscribe methodology. By the end of the lab you will have a connection flow between your device and your Cloud application.
