openHAB is a vendor- and technology-agnostic Open Source automation software for your home. In this one-day workshop we introduce openHAB2 to participants and show them how to configure and use certain aspects of the software, and in particular, discuss the terminology used by the program. In addition to openHAB we will introduce you to MQTT, tell you what it is, and show you how you can adopt this highly flexible communication protocol and integrate “things” with openHAB. Participants will be able to use an ESP8266 preloaded with a small program for lab work with openHAB and MQTT.
Our focus will be for the “Intranet” of things, i.e. we will concentrate on keeping openHAB unreacheable from the Internet, but we will talk about accessing data on the Internet.
The goal of the one-day workshop is to familiarize ourselves with parts of the openHAB 2 software required to perform home automation tasks, and learn the basics of MQTT in order to later build automation scenarios.
people who are interested in learning about home automation with the openHAB 2 home automation broker and MQTT.

Participants should be familiar with the command line, and it would be beneficial if they had some experience with Unix/Linux, but Windows is fine as well; we will be using Linux machines for the lab work with a choice of text editors with which to edit openHAB's configuration files (items, things, rules, etc.). Programming knowledge is not necessary, but we will scratch the surface of the openHAB Rules language.
Hands-on labs will be the main focus of the workshop, and participants will get sundry notes along but are expected to take notes themselves.
The Linuxhotel seminars focus almost exclusively on free software. In most cases you recoup your training expenses by being able to use free software.
