A developer’s guide to the Internet of Things (IoT)

This course is an entry level introduction to developing and deploying solutions for the Internet of Things.

It will focus on capturing data from a trusted device and sending the data to a cloud platform where it can be exploited by the many services available. You will explore all the steps required to create a basic IoT solution using a popular device, the Raspberry Pi, and a trial version of the cloud-based IBM Watson IoT Platform on Bluemix.

What you will learn:

  • Quickly create applications that leverage connectivity and analytics as part of an integrated IoT platform.
  • Use Node-RED, use APIs to access the platform and explore the different connectivity options for various devices, gateways and applications.

The programming assignments require you to have a Raspberry Pi device – any model of Raspberry Pi with a 40 pin header. It is preferred that you also use an associated SenseHAT extension board for the Raspberry Pi.

Finally, you will be given a complimentary trial for the IBM Watson IoT Platform on Bluemix, which lets you explore all the resources and capabilities of a cloud-based IoT solution environment.

This is an entry level course, but does assume you have basic programming skills. The assignments set use both Python and JavaScript programming languages, so some basic skill in these languages is required.

No previous experience with IBM Bluemix or the IBM Watson IoT Platform is required.
