In today’s internet, devices, applications, and components of every shape, size, and function are being hooked up, meaning that data is deluging into repositories at an astounding rate. What can you do with all of this data? How can you take advantage of it? How can you possibly design a system that can ride the wave?
Node-RED is one of the key answers. The visual tool makes it easy to wire together real-world events, add in some intelligence, and access simple nodes to integrate them with existing IBM Messaging systems and social platforms such as Twitter, MongoDB, and Redis to create applications that can react to the world around them.

- “Perfect is the enemy of good”
- “You don’t need permission to innovate (nor should you need to seek forgiveness for learning)”
- “Give people a reason to say ‘yes'”
- “When a side-project becomes a job, it risks becoming a chore”
to create this simple visual tool that makes it easy to wire together events and devices for the Internet of Things.
