Connecting physical devices to the cloud can enhance the user experience. AWS IoT is a new managed service that enables Internet-connected things (sensors, actuators, devices, and applications) to easily and securely interact with each other and the cloud. In this session, we will discuss how constrained devices can send data to the cloud and receive commands back to the device. Devices can securely connect using MQTT, HTTP protocols and developers can leverage several features of AWS IoT such as the Rules Engine and Thing Shadows to quickly and easily build a real connected product. This session will take a practical approach to developing real-world IoT and mobile applications in which the back end is serverless and can scale from one to virtually unlimited users without any infrastructure or servers to manage.
