This is a Curtin University course that is released on the edX platform. The five-week course is designed for students to "learn how to apply software solutions for different systems and big data needs to your IoT designs." The course is free to take, with a Verified Certificate of completion available for $199 (the free audit track ends on August 22). This course is also part of Curtin's Internet of Things MicroMasters program. The course requires on average four to six hours a week of effort.

The edX course description:

"The Internet of Things is creating massive quantities of data, and managing and analysing it requires a unique approach to programming and statistics for distributed data sources.

This course will teach introductory programming concepts that allow connection to, and implementation of some functionality on, IoT devices, using the Python programming language. In addition, students will learn how to use Python to process text log files, such as those generated automatically by IoT sensors and other network-connected systems.

Learners do not need prior programming experience to undertake this course, and will not learn a specific programming language - however Python will be used for demonstrations. This course will focus on learning by working through realistic examples."

"What you'll learn:

  • Appreciate the software needs of an IoT project
  • Understand how data is managed in an IoT network
  • Apply software solutions for different systems and Big Data to your IoT concept designs
  • Create Python scripts to manage large data files collected from sensor data and interact with the real world via actuators and other output devices."
