Practical IoT for Smart Cities, Manufacturing, and Advanced Analytics - Hand's On Workshop

This hands-on workshop is limited to 20 delegates, first come-first served - please note that it is a 3-hour session spread across 3 regular session blocks. When you sign up, sign up for all 3 blocks!

IoT is already in the mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. This can lead to difficulty in starting your own projects, or understanding the basic functionality that underlies the IoT technologies that are all around us. Getting skilled up on the basics of circuits, sensors, and how those things work together and with software is the key to being able to understand, engineer, and support IoT solutions in your own environment.

In this workshop, participants will get hands-on guidance in building and coding their own prototype IoT project from scratch. Participants will walk away from this session with an understanding of the fundamental requirements for assembling a variety of circuits, sensors, platforms, and essential tools that will allow them to rapidly prototype IoT projects for their own scenarios. We will also talk about how to make the transition from prototype to production and the increased capabilities and requirements that transition provides. IoT is a critical technology across so many industries, that knowing these fundamentals will make you a better prepared and more effective IoT practitioner. 
No prior experience in development or hardware is required, and no hardware is needed; it will be provided for participants. Participants need to bring their own laptop for the hand's on portion of the workshop.
