Hands-on Workshop on the Internet of Things using Arduino

Hands-on Workshop on the Internet of Things using Arduino

The Internet of Things,or IoT in short, is the idea of making devices and objects smarter by hooking them over the Internet.Recent years have seen an explosive growth of IoT industry, thus fostering many new startups, targeting diverse IoT domains. One of the unique things about IoT is that you do not need heavy infrastructure or investments to start. You can start with a very low cost prototyping board and one of the popular boards in the market is Arduino. This 02-day workshop will focus on getting you up and running with Arduino quickly, so that you can understand the basic building-blocks of the IoT and yourself, program, configure and integrate them to develop IoT solutions
