WebSockets are the real-time data pipe for your next IoT project

The new WebSockets feature on Golioth allows users to stream data out to external services, such as visualization platforms and web apps. This includes showing “real-time” data from sources on embedded devices, such as sensors. Let’s look at how these are different than previous offerings. What is a WebSocket? A WebSocket is a persistent connection […]

Embedded Rust with Golioth and the Nordic nRF9160

Team members Lachlan and Chris discuss an implementation of a Rust code sample with Golioth and the Nordic Semiconductor nRF9160. There is a demo of the code working in the video attached below. What is Rust? Rust is a high-level, general-purpose programming language, syntactically similar to C and C++. It is fast and memory-efficient and […]

Trying out Golioth with PlatformIO and Arduino Core

In this post and associated video, we’re talking about interfacing hardware to Golioth using popular tools like PlatformIO and Arduino Core (API). Alvaro shows how to use an ESP32 board from Adafruit with the Arduino Core on PlatformIO to talk to the Golioth MQTT endpoint. Golioth has a range of tools and resources for hardware […]
