Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the emerging technology domain which incorporates the power of electronics and telecommunication. It is predicted that, by 2020, every person in the world may use atl east one IoT device. So, it is an area of huge opportunities

Our workshop on IoT with Raspberry Pi  has systematically designed so that the students can understand the basics well, can start from the scratch and programming with RPi for developing any IoT applications. Our workshop is purely hands-on and the students can write the code by their-own, test it using hardware.

Proposed Program Highlights

  • Three day exclusive training on Internet of Things
  • Most modern Raspberry Pi 3 SBC with inbuilt WiFi
  • Covers Device level to Cloud based Contents
  • 80% of training will be hands-on / Practical sessions
  • Follow up trainings and continued support are offered even after current training, based on request
  • 90 day free online support.

Expected Outcome

After the workshop, the participants understand internet of Things and it’s applications. They will be able to develop IoT applications with Raspberry Pi Board.
