@Duane and @Garcia-Lasheras: good points about what board to use teach certain lessons. If you were developing a lesson plan, you'd start with Arduino first and then teach OS on the Pi? Any other recommendations for boards to use in education?
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
