Internet of Things
Nowadays, it is common to have everyday items connected to the internet. Electronics have so small and cheap, that even a peg can have an internet connection. You hear daily in media about devices that can make a connection with internet and about the advantages that the Internet of Things has for the final user. But how does it work, connecting something with the internet? And how do you test it, so it runs smoothly? And how can you apply it yourself?
