How do I get started with Internet of Things programming?

  1. Apr 9, 2014 #1
    I'm looking for a good microcontroller which is compatible with Internet of Things and relatively easy to program. Preferably has development resources for IoT readily available. Someone recommend me a suitable product? I am looking to start tinkering with IoT

    I would recommend the Arduino microcontrollers (Arduino Micro if you want a smaller version) and the Raspberry Pi. They're both great for simple projects and won't break your wallet. Each one has various ethernet, wi-fi, and bluetooth hardware that you can add for connecting together.
