Internet of Things (IoT) Practitioner
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises a wide range of benefits for industry, governments, and individuals. Data can be collected in extraordinary volume and detail and new data analysis tools have been optimized for the massive amounts of data that IoT produces, to quickly make well-informed decisions. Creating and deploying IoT systems can be a complicated. In this course, you will learn general strategies for planning, designing, developing, implementing, and maintaining an IoT system. You’ll review case studies and assemble and configure an IoT device to work in a sensor network. You will create an IoT device based on an ESP8266 microcontroller and implement common IoT features such as analog and digital sensors, a web-based interface, MQTT messaging, and data encryption.
Other topics include microcontroller programming and IoT security. The approach taken in this course is to apply Internet of Things technologies to solve real-world problems. This course is designed for IT professionals with fundamental skills in computer hardware, software support, and development who want to design, develop, implement, operate, and manage Internet of Things devices and related systems. It aligns with preparation for taking the CertNexus® Certified Internet of Things (IoT) Practitioner (Exam ITP-110).
