Lesson 6 – Connecting to the cloud

Overview

When developing a cellular application, transmitting your data to be hosted on a cloud solution is a very common use-case. Nordic offers the cloud platform nRF Cloud, and the accompanying nRF Cloud library in nRF Connect SDK to connect to it. In this lesson, we will go over some of the basic things when connecting to any cloud platform such as the REST model and JSON formatting and learn how to use the nRF Cloud library in nRF Connect SDK to transmit data to the cloud.

In the exercise section of this lesson, we will connect to nRF Cloud via MQTT and send sensor data to be visualized.

Objectives

  • Learn about the REST model and JSON formatting
  • Learn how to use the nRF Cloud library to connect to nRF Cloud
  • Practice how to use the nRF Cloud library to send data to the cloud
