In this episode of the Hardware podcast, we talk with Chris Meringolo, an engineer at ThingWorx, and Brian Jepson, an editor at O’Reilly Media. This conversation took place during the LiveWorx 2016 conference, where the three of us presented a hands-on connected-device tutorial that we’re calling the O’Reilly IoT Learning Lab.

The Learning Lab tutorial walks through a basic IoT illustration that starts with an ordinary Raspberry Pi 3—a $35 single-board computer—and a handful of sensors. It takes less than an hour to connect the Pi to the ThingWorx platform and start streaming data to the cloud in real time. (If you’re interested in seeing the course booklet for the in-person workshops that were held at LiveWorx, you can find it here.)
