How to get started with your first IoT App?


Over the last few years, the concept of the Internet of Things has been trending and discussed among techies widely. Many companies that are developing IoT projects have increased significantly. Not only that, but many companies have also registered a significant amount of profit in their revenue after developing an Internet of Things product.

This simply means that the people are interested in these types of products and they are willing to invest in such products. This opens a way for thousands of people to get a high-paying job in the industry of computer science. Here, in this article, we are going to discuss how you can get started with the development of your first IoT app.

This article can read all the professionals who want to switch their career fields and want to work on the IoT project and all the students who are confused regarding which field they should choose after opting for computer science.

Just read through this article and know what you should learn before developing your Internet of Things project.

  1. Electronics

Having a decent knowledge of the electronics field is the major requirement to develop an IoT product. Along with electronics, one must have fluent knowledge about all the numbering systems, especially a binary translator tool. A binary translator can convert a binary to text and text to binary. Humans cannot understand binary numbers while computer systems cannot read the text code. To resolve the issue, many computer engineers prefer to learn the numbering system to develop a binary translator.

  1. Web development

Just like electronics, one is also required to learn different web development concepts to develop a decent Internet of things product. You can start learning different web development concepts like object-oriented programming and binary translator development concepts. There are many popular languages that you can use to develop an internet of Things product but if you want to get a full-time job as an Internet of a thing application developer.

  1. Algorithm development

Learning web development is not enough to develop an internet of things product. When you work on a real-life IOT product then you have to deal with a lot of data and traditional programming won’t be helpful in this case. You will have to learn about Algorithm development to write a perfect code for your product otherwise you may face a lot of application crash issues.

  1. Code optimization

Google has just released the page experience update which requires all the pages’ page loading speed to be optimized. The higher page loading speed will end up in the lower search ranking. Being an app developer, you have to make sure that the website for an app is perfectly optimized to get more users.

  1. Computer networking concepts

When working on an IOT product that works on the LAN (local area network), you have to figure out a way to make the product work on the local area network. For this, you need to learn about networking programming that uses the socket Javascript library heavily. Popular programming languages to get started with network programming are Java and Javascript. If you use Javascript then there already is a back-end framework called Node.js. it is really easy to program with Node.js and along with that, Node.js can be helpful if you are using Javascript framework in the front-end as well. Popular front-end frameworks are Angular, React.js and Vue.js. You can choose any of these frameworks at your convenience. Do let us know by dropping a comment that which framework you have used and which back-end programming language you have used for your IoT project.

If you find any difficulty while developing this product, then do let us know. We might help you to complete the project.
