Developing IoT applications with IBM API Connect and LoopBack

This paper provides an example of how you can quickly and easily develop an application to access and display the output of a small, highly portable sensor that generates prodigious amounts of data. The demonstration is designed to showcase the ease of implementing an Internet of Things (IoT) device that uses a REST application programming interface (API) to expose the data. Specifically, the API code uses the open source Node.js LoopBack® framework supported by IBM® StrongLoop®.
