About this event
Curious what the Internet of Things (IoT) is all about? Join us for an introduction to IoT systems and applications, learn how to build and enhance IoT applications, discover how to safeguard yourself against IoT and server attacks, and more.

The impact of IoT applications is estimated to be $11 trillion – but only if we can secure it. This creates opportunities for companies that can forecast or generate near real-time business insights for those connected devices, but also presents a challenge to secure data across a web of embedded devices.

Workshops will be in an open session format on Zoom from 2 – 3 p.m. ET:

June 2, 2021 – Introduction to IoT with Gurminder Kandola
June 16, 2021 – Real-time IoT Analytics with Avi Bhargava and Riyad Parvez
You can also take part in demonstrations on microcontrollers such as the ESP32, Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ or Compute Module 4. Plus, try out the commercial grade 5G testbed at the Communitech Data Hub after the session. There’s limited availability, so sign up early!
