$6 Maker UNO: Simplifying Arduino for {Education} With FAVORIOT

My friend at Cytron Technologies is going to launch an Arduino compatible Maker UNO board as a Kickstarter Campaign called $6 Maker UNO: Simplifying Arduino for {Education}. They send to Favoriot an early production board for review.

Previously, we had done a Complete Tutorial Video – How to Connect Cytron Uno (Arduino Uno) With Favoriot Platform.

Simple to setup and easy to use. The configuration is same as in HERE.

Documentation downloadable at HERE.

The idea behind all of this is to simplify the journey towards building your first ioT solution and also reduce the headaches of troubleshooting. We fully recommend beginners, hobbyists, university students that intend to build IoT for the Final Year projects to find a simple Maker Arduino from Cytron Technologies and also get an IoT middleware like Favoriot to push the data into the cloud for further analysis and integration.

MARA Plans to Offer Diploma in Internet of Things (IoT)

KUALA LUMPUR March 14, 2017 – MARA (Majlis Amanah Rakyat) invited me to their Academic Advisory Workshop to develop the new curriculum and syllabus for Internet of Things by giving some comments and advise on behalf of the industry.

What’s interesting is that their plan to offer one of the latest topic in the industry for their Diploma intake. It will definitely take sometime to prepare the full contents of their syllabus including the lab facilities, proper teaching materials and equipped their lecturers with the complete knowledge of IoT.

Due to the cross-discipline nature of IoT between Engineering and Computer Science Faculty, it has always become a big debate who will conduct the full IoT course. We approached the discussion based on the 7 Layers of OSI. Since IoT comprised of the first 4 layers (Sensors, actuators and connectivity) and the next upper 3 layers (applications and analytics), new syllabus content need to be developed.

It has always been a challenge by Higher Institutions to justify new and trendy curriculum as a course because they might be preparing the new graduates with competencies for jobs which are not in existence today (but will be big in future).
