The Internet of Things (IoT) is a hot topic! Analysts call it a disruptive technology. Competing standards and technologies pop up daily, and there are no tangible signs of a single protocol that will let all devices, services, and applications communicate seamlessly. Fortunately, there's a great universal IoT application platform available now: the World Wide Web. Web standards and tools provide the ideal substrate for connected devices and applications to exchange data. This vision is called the Web of Things.

Building the Web of Things is a hands-on guide for designing and implementing scalable, flexible, and open IoT solutions using Web technologies. This book provides the right balance of theory, code samples, and practical examples, and shows how to connect all sorts of devices to the Web and expose their services and data over REST APIs. After building a simple proof of concept app, readers will learn a systematic methodology and system architecture for connecting things to the Web, finding other things, sharing data, and combining these components to rapidly build distributed applications and physical mashups. With each chapter, readers gain the knowledge and skills needed to take full advantage of a new generation of real-time, web-connected devices and services, giving them the ability to build scalable applications that merge the physical and digital worlds.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
