Overview

We all know that smart devices make our lives better every day. And there are coders behind every one of those devices. If you’re ready to change the world by taking analog information into the digital realm, bring your basic coding experience and take your first steps toward programming for the Internet of Things. Learn to program devices (sensors, blinking LEDs, temperature displays, and more) with Raspberry Pi—a must-know for anyone in this space. See how to write the software that controls the hardware, and get started making a difference with procedural programming.

Begin with an intro to embedded programming, take a look at embedded devices, and explore sensors, actuators, and outputs. Then work with the hardware/software interface, get to know the C Programming language and its features, and learn about basic data management. From there, dive into embedded solutions. Build your first circuit, and get hands-on with lots of mini labs. Wrap up with a look at device app development, as you connect your device to the cloud.

Plan to spend two to four hours per week for five weeks on the course, which includes videos, text, labs, and non-graded assessments. Then show off your new skills and knowledge with an impressive final project.

Total waste of time.

I took this course, because expected to learn writing programs on Raspberry Pi for various sensors and input/output devices;

As result, there was only 2-3 poor code examples: blinking led, outputting text to console ; There was mentioned wxample with 3-in-1 digital sensor that communicates over I2C . but totally no code or hints, how to write this code on your own, were not provided;

IMHO , the most part of course is intended on those people, who totally don't know about elecronics from hardware point of view. Even though, I would a…
