Often times it can take a lot of time, effort, and programming knowledge to quickly and effectively bring an idea from concept to creation. Even with the countless libraries out there, tutorials and resources we can sometimes find ourselves stuck reinventing the wheel when it comes to building out ideas into production.
Node-RED eases this pain by providing a fast and easy way to create flow based programs to get your ideas running on either web applications, dashboards and IoT devices in minutes. It is very easy to get started with and is a great open source tool for beginners and experienced developers alike who want to write and understand programming flow. It can be used for APIs, Databases, IOT devices, Web Sockets, Emails, Scripting, Image Processing, Cloud computing, edge computing, creating websites and lot more one can think of doing it based on Node JS.
In this workshop we will get hands on with Node-RED and go over the basics of getting started with building out flows to quickly and easily prototype web applications.
By the end of this workshop attendees should be able to walk away with:
• Overall understanding of Node-Red
• Creating flows in Node-RED
• Deploying an App
• Importing and Exporting flows
• Prototyping with Watson Apis
• Prototyping a Weather application
