Everyday, exciting new tiny network devices pop up: the Internet of Things (IoT) is already here - from the hardware side. On the software side however, current platforms made it uneasy for developers to build apps that run on heterogeneous IoT hardware. Unfortunately, Linux does not scale down to small, energy- and resource-constrained devices, while smaller footprint alternatives such as Contiki yield a huge learning curve and lengthy development life-cycles, because they rule out standard programming languages, paradigms and debugging.
RIOT is a new open source software platform for embedded devices that bridges this gap. In this tutorial, we will first give a brief
background about RIOT, and then give you hands-on epxeriences on easy programming of the IoT using RIOT. We will start with a hello world program, which we will deploy on real IoT hardware. Based on this, we illustrate the basic principles of RIOT, in particular the scheduling concept and the network stack, including multi-hop routing and future network concepts such as ICN.
