Un curso muy útil para iniciarse en el IoT. Muchas gracias!

This is one of the best course I attended. I want to upgrade my skills for IoT Platform. Really appreciate the efforts & time of the course organiser. I was late to submit my assignment for 3rd week, due to my personal busy schedule & few things which I didn't understood that's also because of me. Instructor really explained very well. Looking forward to the next level of IoT learning.

very good course for blue mix and node-red beginners.

great course with nice practical assignments..!!!
