Introduction to MQTT protocol for IOT applications.

In my previous blog post, I explained why the widely used application-layer protocol HTTP is not suitable for the IOT applications. There are a number of application-layer protocols developed to serve the purpose of IOT like MQTT, AMQP, CoAP, XMPP, STOMP etc. In this blog post, I will provide an introduction to MQTT protocol, its design, architecture and use-case examples.

Why HTTP is not suitable for IOT applications.

When developing modern web-applications, the most commonly used application layer protocol is HTTP. It is suitable for serving hypermedia resources in a request-response fashion over the internet. However, when it comes to the Internet of things(IOT), it tends to perform poorly mainly because it was designed to be a reliable but heavy-weight protocol for the world-wide-web. In this blog, I want to highlight the issues with HTTP with respect to IOT applications.

Using IoT on a Beer Kegerator

Being born and raised in the great state of Wisconsin, beer has been a part of most of my adult life. Couple that with my love of technology, I always wondered how I could leverage some cool tech with a beer theme. Since the proliferation of inexpensive hardware and the Internet of Things (IoT), it has now become easy (and cheap!) to provide solutions that can be used to monitor (among other things) beer-related activities. This article will describe and detail the steps I took to create a solution for monitoring beer consumption on a beer kegerator.
