About this Course

Do you want to develop skills to prototype embedded products using state-of-the-art technologies? In this course you will build a hardware and software development environment to guide your journey through the Internet of Things specialization courses. We will use the DragonBoard™ 410c single board computer (SBC). This is the first in a series of courses where you will learn both the theory and get the hands-on development practice needed to prototype Internet of Things products. This course is suitable for a broad range of learners. This course is for you if: - You want to learn how to use learn how to use Linux for embedded purposes. - You want to pivot your career towards the design and development of Internet of Things enabled products - You are an entrepreneur, innovator or member of a DIY community Learning Goals: After completing this course, you will be able to: 1) Know where you can find resources and help in the 96Boards ecosystem. 2) Describe the DragonBoard™ 410c peripherals, I/O expansion capabilities, Compute (CPU and Graphics) capabilities, and Connectivity capabilities. 3) Understand how to navigate and make use of the Linux terminal. 4) Configure at least one integrated development environment (IDE) for developing software. 5) Make use of Git and GitHub for version control purposes. 6) Create and build projects that interface with sensors and actuators through GPIO and Arduino....

Good initiative but little hard to understand quiz, because those are out of the box, but what they are teaching is very clear and easy to understand.

I did not like the quiz number 3, I tried many options and I did not find the answer, I spent several days and could not answer those questions and the forum of questions does not work as it should be.

I liked most of the class except for the 3rd quiz. The answers were very difficult to match. Sometimes the answer is just the method name with no parameters, then on another question the parameters are required. I feel that this third quiz is a bottle neck for many people.

A totally intermediate-advanced level course. Not easy but if you manage to grasp all its knowledge (this is actually the foundations for any board applied to IoT), you'll be on the clear for any implementation on following courses.Heads up: quizzes are a bit hard and not so straight forward as others, and there has been continuous improvement in this due to some have had bugs. Be sure to get in touch with the course team if you're struggling too hard.
