Building a solar powered weather station with Nerves

If you aren't familiar with the Nerves tooling system, or haven't used it yet, then this talk will show you how easy it is to write Elixir code for your tiny Linux powered devices (Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone).

You will briefly hear about the GPIO and I2C protocol and how you write code to program with them using the Elixir Circuits Libraries.

Finally John will share how easy it is to build a solar panel to charge a battery to keep a Nerves powered system running 24/7.

THIS TALK IN THREE WORDS

OBJECTIVES

How begineers (of which John is) can easily use Nerves to build simple IoT projects

TARGET AUDIENCE
