AT&T M2X Data Service


Free EVENING IoT workshop on the RESTful AT&T M2X Data Service APIs

"I just got home from the AT&T workshop tonight and WOW!  I am so glad I went." (Chicago attendee)

Can't make it in the evening? Then come to our afternoon DevLab

Are you a developer who is interested in the Internet of Things (IoT)? Would you like to be able to collect and retrieve data from Internet-connected sensors for applications in health, home, government, and industry through network and programming language agnostic RESTful APIs?  Join the AT&T Developer Program for an evening coding workshop on the M2X Data Service.  The M2X Data Service is a cloud-based fully managed data storage service for network connected machine-to-machine (M2M) devices. This will be an evening of learning and hands-on coding, including working with an Internet-connected sensor.  Bring your laptops and leave with our APIs working from your own M2X account.
This workshop will be taught by subject matter experts from AT&T’s Plano Foundry Innovation Center, the hub of AT&T's leading-edge IoT research.  It also will provide a great opportunity to network with AT&T experts and your fellow developers.

The event is free and we will be serving dinner.  If you are an app or device developer planning or already developing IoT devices then this is the event for you. Space is limited so register now.
Find out how carrier APIs from the AT&T Developer Program can benefit you, your app, and your device strategy. We look forward to meeting you!

"I walked out of there feeling like an API rockstar."

Installing Postman and cURL for the Lab Exercises

The lab exercises use Postman and cURL so please install them before the event.


We will use cURL for the M2X API lab exercises but you can also use Postman (a free Chrome add-in) if you prefer. You can download Postman at and the Chrome browser at


For the lab exercises we will use cURLa powerful command-line tool for making HTTP calls.

Pre-requisites: Windows 7 or later (cURL is already installed on Mac computers)

Downloading curl

Use the following steps to install curl:

  • Open in a browser.
  • Select your operating system in the dropdown box: either Windows /Win32 or Win 64. Click Select!
  • For Win 32, choose whether you will use curl in a Windows Command Prompt (Generic) or in a Cygwin terminal (cygwin). For Win 64, choose whether you will use curl in a Windows Command Prompt (Generic) or MinGW (MinGW64). Click Select!
  • If required, choose your Windows operating system. Finish.
  • Click Download for the version which has SSL enabled.
  • Choose a version with support for SSL.
  • Open the downloaded zip file. Extract the files to an easy-to-find place, such as C:\Program Files.

Testing curl

  • Open up the Windows Command Prompt terminal. (From the Start menu, click Run, then type cmd.)
  • Set the path to include the directory where you put curl.exe. For example, if you put it in C:\Program Files\curl, then you would type the following command:

set path=%path%;"c:\Program Files\curl"

  • Type curl.

You should see the following message:

curl: try 'curl –help' or 'curl –message' for more information

This means that curl is installed and the path is correct.

  • Type:


You should see JSON returned:


"error": "invalid API request"



SSL certification error

If you see an SSL certification error, add a -k flag into your curl command.

https not supported error

If you get an error that says, “Protocol http not supported or disabled in libcurl”, then you need a different version of curl. Make sure you have downloaded one that says SSL enabled. If you have downloaded the Win64 version, try the Win32 version instead, even if you are on a 64 bit machine.
