Hello ThingSpeak community!

In a few days I'll be giving an introductive workshop on the arduino ecosystem and the internet of things and one of the exercises we have planned makes use of ThingSpeak - basically, logging values read from a temperature sensor. We plan on having each participant register individually, of course, and use their own API keys for this purpose. We will, of course, make sure everyone respects the request rate limit.

We have one concern: we'll have a single outgoing IP address. To ThingSpeak's servers, it may look like there is an excessive number of requests coming from this IP address. I'm trying to see if this will become an issue and what steps I can take to mitigate it.

The number of individual participants will be around 25.
