Internet of Things 101 Workshop

Date: Oct. 3rd, 2017
Venue: Denver Marriott South at Park Meadows
Workshop Times: 9 am to 5 pm
Price: $595 – Register Here
Instructor: Shivakumar Mathapathi – CTO, Dew Mobility and Instructor at Santa Clara University, Cal Poly (CSU) 

This course introduces the application and the principles behind the Internet of Things (IoT). The course covers the infrastructure-related architectures, technologies and protocol frameworks that enable IoT. The course will expose the participants to the use of these technologies for various applications.

What You Will Learn

  • Overview of IoT domain related to hardware, Operating systems and Web IoT protocols.
  • Learn building blocks and schematic of IoT such as Sensors, hardware and cloud components.
  • Learn various cloud IoT platforms available such as AWS IoT, IBM-Bluemix and Microsoft Azure.
  • How to design and develop an IoT applications.

Course Description
This course introduces the design principles of the Internet of Things (IoT) and their device and infrastructure-related architectures, technologies and protocol frameworks that aimed at enabling the formation of highly distributed and ubiquitous networks with seamlessly connected heterogeneous devices.

Participant will learn to design and analyze such networks in order to support the development of intelligent services with given performance requirements in a variety of application domains. In particular, attendees will learn about the major architectures and paradigms for the Internet of Things, and protocols at the different levels of the IoT stack and also will learn to map those concepts with the OSI model by means of access layer (including sensor, vehicular and cellular networks for machine-to-machine communication) and network layer (with particular emphasis on IPv6-based solutions), and analyze their performance.

The course will also introduce technologies and protocols at the service and application layers, which enable the integration of embedded devices in web-based, distributed applications. Participants will get the notions for service creation, customization, execution and deployment in distributed IoT heterogeneous environments.

You will learn the IP for Smart Objects motivation and main challenges, IEEE 802.15.4, MQTT and Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) features, interaction model, packet format, messages and request/response sub­layers.

Workshop Outcomes
At the end of this course, attendees will demonstrate the ability to:

  • Understand what IoT technologies are used for today, and what is required in certain scenarios.
  • Understand the types of technologies that are available and in use today and can be utilized to implement IoT solutions.
  • Demonstrate understanding of network layer support of IoT.
  • Demonstrate understanding of IoT and major machine-to-machine (M2M) communication 
  • Design an end-to-end IoT project with all the possible components.
  • Characterize the Internet of Things (IoT) and enumerate its distinctive characteristics.

Who Should Attend?
The IoT workshop is designed to help Software developers, Hardware Engineers, Sensor manufacturer, Cloud data scientist and Business manager who are planning to adopt and deploy Internet of Things products, solutions and IoT services. The workshops also helps for startups, medium and large companies to learn the current trend, technologies and implementation strategy for various IoT solutions available in the market.
