I think this whole course concept with the hands-on hardware interaction is a GREAT idea — thanks Jacob, ST, Digi-Key, UBM, et al for making it possible! (and for being willing to try out this experiment in the first place)
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.
