The Internet of Things is just getting started

The Internet of Things (IoT) is just getting started. Honestly though, if you think about it, IoT has always been here. In the beginning, we had the internet.

This article will describe and detail the steps I took to create a solution for monitoring beer consumption on a beer kegerator.
