Announcing 18 New How-To Intel® IoT Technology Code Samples in JavaScript*

By Cheston Contaoi, Published: 11/06/2015, Last Updated: 12/06/2015

We are pleased to announce the release of 18 new how-to IoT Code Samples in JavaScript*. These applications are part of a series of how-to code sample exercises using the Intel® IoT Developer Kit, Intel® IoT Gateway, UP Squared*, cloud platforms, APIs, and other technologies, and are designed for anyone interested in learning IoT development.

A complete list of these JavaScript code sample titles is provided below, along with their links to instructions and code.  

From these exercises, developers will learn how to:

  • Connect an Intel® IoT Gateway or UP Squared*, computing platforms designed for prototyping and producing IoT computing products.
  • Interface with the sensor repository using MRAA and UPM from the Intel® IoT Developer Kit, a complete hardware and software solution to help developers explore the IoT and implement innovative projects.
  • Run these code samples in Intel® System Studio or Arduino Create*, IDEs for creating applications that interact with sensors and actuators, enabling a quick start for developing software for your device.
  • Connect to a cloud platform (Microsoft Azure*, Amazon Web Services (AWS)*, etc.)
  • Invoke the services of APIs including Twilio* for sending text messages, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) for accessing earthquake data and Weather Underground* for accessing weather data.

To get started, select any of these titles:

      Access control

      Air quality sensor

      Alarm clock

      Bluetooth® low energy scan bracelet

      Close call reporter


      Earthquake detector

      Equipment activity monitor

      Watering system


Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
