SIGFOX is known for building up and operating a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN), suitable for connecting sensors to the internet. In our previous blog posts we showed how to code firmware for different types of Sigfox transceivers and development boards. Now it’s time to connect the data stream to a nice backend. Enter com2m, a germany-based company, and their IoT Platform. Read on!
The blog is written by our tech-team with Andreas Schmidt, CTO of ThingForward. If you have any questions or comments please get in touch. He and his Crew are always happy to “talk tech” with you. If you have any questions or comments please get in touch.
At ThingForward, we are testing new IoT solutions in order to provide solid support to our customers’ needs, and at our developer workshops, we’ve been using NodeMCU’s ESP8266 and the Grove Connector/Shield system for quite some time now. We still needed a Grove Base Shield for the new ESP32 but could not find it. So we decided to PCB-design our own :) Read our story about it here.
Today we will focus on Python by using Zerynth IDE. Zerynth provides tools and services for programming professional microcontrollers in Python for embedded and IoT applications. We show how to get started.
At ThingForward, we’re looking at embedded programming from a multilingual perspective, inspired by and with the background of multiple years of web development.
Programming for embedded is truly different: Very close to the hardware, with very limited capabilities, with no operating system or very slim OS functionality.
If you want to use dynamic languages on small devices, where could you look?
This is the seconds part of our Cloud IDE Testing Blog Posts, where we're taking a look at CodeEnvy.
