Included in the course fee is a NXP FRDM-KL25Z microcontroller that you get to keep and take home. Additionally, you get an ebook of your choice, from a list of embedded systems O'Reilly titles. You'll use this embedded device in your first designs, considering its role in telemetry and telecommand.
All skill levels are invited to participate in the workshop. At the end of the day, students will know how to 'build a low powered smart appliance' using common hardware developer kits. Please bring a laptop and smartphone to the workshop.
The instructor, a professional IoT network engineer, will teach legacy protocols like HTTP as well as modern embedded protocols like MQTT and AMQP. He will provide a number of hardware devices on loan for the duration of the workshop like:
9:00 am - 12:00 pm:
FRDM-KL25Z development with ARM mbed
Minnowboard Turbot and IoT Messaging
Arduino development with PlatformIO
12:00 - 1:00 pm - 1 hour break (optional)
1:00 - 5:00 pm:
Smart appliance design (selection of sensors and actuators)
Embedded and IoT relevant messaging systems engineering
Individual projects or Bluetooth Smart development
Bonus: Build groups and showcase connected projects
