Between September 11th and 13th, the buzzing corridors of the German-Malaysian Institute (GMI) echoed with excitement and curiosity. Favoriot, a stalwart in the Internet of Things (IoT) realm, orchestrated a riveting, hands-on training session exclusively for GMI’s passionate lecturers. The guiding light behind this 3-day adventure? To pave the way to IoT proficiency and illuminate the ever-evolving horizons of this domain.
Day 1: The IoT Odyssey Begins
The day kicked off with a breeze of a registration process. Right after, participants huddled for an engaging onboarding session, unveiling the map of the treasure trove of knowledge that awaited them. Mornings here aren’t just about coffee; ours was spiced up with immersive talks about the vast IoT universe, its intricate ecosystem, and the gears that make it tick. By mid-day, the buzzword was LoRa & LoRaWAN, preparing the minds for the deeper dives ahead. As the sun dipped, participants got their tech gloves on, exploring the nooks and crannies of the Favoriot IoT Platform, mastering the art of user profiles, API keys, and much more.
Day 2: Riding the Waves of Data
After dusting off the learnings of Day 1, it was time to get even more hands-on. With screens aglow and codes a-flow, participants took the helm of the LoRa Shield on Raspberry Pi. They danced with Python codes, whispered to MQTT, and unearthed the secrets of data retrieval from a myriad of sensors. It wasn’t just about listening; it was about doing and discovering.
Day 3: The Art and Science of IoT
The grand finale was nothing short of a tech carnival. Recapping the journey so far, the GMI lecturers then set forth on an expedition into data’s depths. With Python Libraries as their tools and Pandas as their trusted sidekick, data manipulation turned into an art form. Post a sumptuous lunch (because, hey, even tech gurus need their fuel), the spotlight was on transmitting data from Raspberry Pi to Favoriot’s platform. The grand wrap-up included creating mesmerizing IoT dashboards, painting data stories with Matplotlib, and a sprinkle of Data Analytics & AI magic.
