Brent Stone, Dan Hawthorne, and Luke Maffey walk you through a hands-on workshop demonstrating every step needed to set up a secure streaming data flow from an Internet of Things device like a car network data logger to a cloud-hosted database. Participants will be provided their own temporary account on Google Cloud Platform to learn using the exact same tools used by tech giants and startups.

  • Additional workshop registration is needed to coordinate access to a private Google Cloud Platform (GCP) class environment and student accounts. Please provide your name and email at https://forms.gle/ZxpTrKeQNCax2hzf8.

  • Please ensure the email provided is registered with and accepted as a Google login account as you will need this to reliably access the QwikLabs class and GCP student resources.

  • If you'd like to follow along with a real IoT device, Brent will be demonstrating live data collection from his car using the Macchina P1 based on the Pocket Beagle platform. While currently out of stock due to the global chip shortage, the P1 is available at https://www.macchina.cc/catalog.
