IoT Workshop Wrap-up: Course Recap, Discussion, and Evaluation

Course Overview

Course in a Nutshell

In this two-day in-depth course, you will acquire a broad understanding of the technical requirements for IoT (networks, devices, security, data management, etc.) as well as the issues and challenges for deploying and operating an IoT enabled application or service. Also discussed are some of the more advanced topics that are key to the future of IoT networks, services, and data. The course culminates in a workshop that will enable you to put your knowledge to work by planning an IoT enabled service.


Customize It!

We can customize this course, usually at little to no additional cost, to your project requirements and participant backgrounds. Topics can be added or omitted and the course can be made more or less technical depending on the audience interests.

Audience / Prerequisites
