IBM, Coursera Team Up on IoT Developer Course
The course focuses on capturing data from trusted devices and getting the data to the cloud platform where it can be exploited by the many services available on a typical cloud platform, Turner said. "The course will teach you how to use Node-RED, a rapid application development environment, on both the device and the cloud," he said. "You will then use Node-RED to create an Internet of things solution by leveraging pre-built componentry that rapidly enables 'things' to 'talk' to each other, along with lower-level APIs to manipulate and analyze the data sent by the device. Along the way, we will explore options for ensuring your solution makes the best use of the information captured."
