The mental fatigue and wasted time can be avoided by using strategies like identifying the most-appropriate tool, taking a logical & objective approach, challenging assumptions, listening to variables, isolating the code path, and reinforcing code with automated tests.

Rise of the Machines: PHP and IoT

Baltimore PHP

The Internet of Things (IoT) is fundamentally changing how we interact with the digital world. In this talk, we’ll explore the implementation of live examples which bridge the gap between the physical and digital world using PHP: asking Alexa for information on php[world] conference sessions; displaying API data on an Arduino-powered display; using PHP to control LEDs on a Raspberry Pi to monitor application uptime; and connecting IR sensors to Slack to see whether a conference room is in use.
