HOPE 2020 (2020): "HomeBot is Alive! Building a Wi-Fi-enabled, Cloud-based, Tweeting, and SMS-ing Arduino Water Leak Detector - A Basic DIY Project Story" (Download)
Tuesday, July 28, 2020: 1100. It all began when Jason's home water heater started leaking. This led him down a path of learning and discovery, ultimately resulting in a basic but well-connected set of home water leak sensors. In this session, he will recap his experiences and journey around Arduino programming and electronics, using AWS API gateways and Lambda functions, and overcoming several minor but frustrating speed bumps along the way. Jason will share the many things he learned, as he progressed along the pathway from being an Arduino and AWS Lambda noob to someone who is now a proud "advanced beginner." This session will include basic technical information, code walkthroughs, and a video demo from the basement of Jason's house.
