This post provides an overview and learning objectives of Chapter 8 from my book Building Arduino Projects for the Internet of Things.

Introduction

As most of our day to day tasks and interactions move to mobile devices, web applications will still have a place. In IoT space they will mainly be used for monitoring and controlling large scale implementations.

In this chapter, you are going to build a Temperature Monitoring System. Figure below shows a high-level diagram of all components involved in this system. First component is an Arduino device that gathers temperature data and publishes it to a server using HTTP request. Second component is a server that receives temperature data and stores it in a database. Final component accesses temperature data from the server and presents it to users in a web-based analytics dashboard. This web-based analytics dashboard is physically going to reside in the server as well.
