Jason Garbis has worked in the software industry for over 30 years, in roles that include software engineer, technical consultant, and product manager. This makes him quite old! In addition to his current professional role leading product management for a zero trust network security vendor, he embraces being a lifelong learner and isn't embarrassed to be a beginner at new things, even at his advanced age. He is a published author, and holds a CISSP certification.
HomeBot is Alive! Building a Wi-Fi-enabled, Cloud-based, Tweeting, and SMS-ing Arduino Water Leak Detector - A Basic DIY Project Story
It all began when Jason’s home water heater started leaking. This led him down a path of learning and discovery, ultimately resulting in a basic but well-connected set of home water leak sensors. In this session, he will recap his experiences and journey around Arduino programming and electronics, using AWS API gateways and Lambda functions, and overcoming several minor but frustrating speed bumps along the way. Jason will share the many things he learned, as he progressed along the pathway from being an Arduino and AWS Lambda noob to someone who is now a proud “advanced beginner.” This session will include basic technical information, code walkthroughs, and a video demo from the basement of Jason’s house.
