A Hands-on Introduction to the Internet of Things (IoT)

This introductory course will give attendees an introduction to the exciting field of Internet of Things. Learn Sensors Networking, Security, Data Formats, Protocols, Data Processing, Stream Processors, Ingestors & much more in 2 days


According to Gartner, there will be 20 billion connected devices on the planet by 2020. These connected devices, sometimes referred to as Internet of Things (IoTs) range from personal gadgets like mobile phones and wearables to home appliance and automobiles. As industries rely more and more on automation, we will see industrial equipment rely more and more on sensor data. This introductory course will give attendees an introduction to the exciting field of Internet of Things. We will start with a gentle introduction, understand the architecture of an IoT application and build working prototypes for different industries. We will also discuss the pertinent legal, ethical, security and data governance issues.

Who should attend?

This 2-day course is open for all working professionals who want to get hands-on, real-world, practical learning on IoTs.

What you will learn?

  • How is the current landscape of IoTs and what lies in the near future?
  • Understand the architecture of an IoT application. Sensors, hardware, communication, networking, security, data formats, protocols, and data processing
  • How data flows in data pipeline – Ingestors, Stream Processors, AWS, Azure, etc.?
  • What are the possible security, privacy, encryption issues with the IoTs?
  • Innovation in artificial intelligence, sensors, and IoT chips
  • Ethical, legal and governance issues in IoTs
