How to connect Factory I/O with PLCnext

Factory I/O is a virtual environment that is designed to be linked with PLC's in order to teach, test and train. 

It is a great addition to get to know PLCnext other then the inputs and outputs provided by the starter kit.

The Tankerkönig API provides easy access to the current fuel prices of all registered gas stations in Germany. All 14,000+ petrol stations in Germany must report the prices for Super E5, Super E10 and diesel to this department of the Federal Cartel Office in a timely manner. Access to this data is only possible through this authority for licensed fuel price information services. So that other users such as developers of apps, websites, etc. can use this data, there is the free API from Tankerkönig. Tankerkönig.de has decided to release its API in order to make the gained experience available to others in the sense of the open data concept.
