Welcometo IoTFriday at thethings.iO. This weekend Oktoberfest will be taking place in Munich. For those of you who have never been, it’s a huge, gorgeous party with lots of food and beer. We get the opportunity to co-organize the 3rd edition of the Oktoberfest of Things hackathon. The main goal is to connect Oktoberfest beers to the Internet.
Today at the IoTFriday I’m going to talk about the Oktoberfest of Things and how to connect beers to the Internet.

Transcription of the video
Hello thethings.iO friends! This is a new edition of the #IoTFriday! Today i’m going to talk about how to connect things to the Internet with my new Koubachi, a sensor plant that help me to water my plants.
Internet of Things is today a trendy topic. Introduced at 1999 by Kevin Ashton englobes a bigger picture of how to connect anything to the Internet.
The tools that we have today enables anyone to connect cheap and easy to programme hardware inside everyday objects. This new connectivity allows designers, programmers and engineers build different uses for those objects for different industrial or consumer applications.
Below is the whiteboard in which Marc explained how to connect things to the Internet.
