Be sure you are logged in to developerWorks for progress and completion tracking.

In this hands-on Internet of Things (IoT) course, you’ll connect Node-RED flows (applications) running on IBM Bluemix (IBM Cloud) to more flows and simple Swift applications. You’ll use those applications to track the temperature of a Raspberry Pi CPU, store that data in IBM Cloudant NoSQL database, takes pictures with the RaspCam, send Twitter notifications, and send simple commands from your smartphone to the iRobot.

Important: You don’t need to purchase the iRobot to be successful in this course. But playing with a programmable robot can be a lot more fun!
