Using Django Rest Framework in IoT!

Aniket Maithani (~aniket)




Generally creating your own IoT product is considered to be a hassle especially when you want to handle your IoT device across multiple platform e.g Mobile devices etc. The most generic solution to such a problem is creating an API for the same and hence enabling device interaction via multiple interface. I would give some uses cases which I have practically implemented using DRF and [Arduino+Raspberry Pi]

The following talk would stress on the following points : - IoT [Just a misnomer??] - IoT & Python [Best Buddies!!] - Handling Request/Response from your IoT device using API - Analysing device feasibility - Testing your API along with Hardware [Test Cases, Unit Testing (gist)] - Use Cases [ Primarily Educational, for social causes etc. ]


  • Internet Access
  • Power
  • Project
  • Audio

That's All Folks!
