Course Introduction

The course covers “physical computing” (how to write code which interact with sensors & actuators), visualisation (using “Matplotlib”), data analysis (using “Numpy”), and sending sensors data to cloud (using “Requests”). In other words, participants will learn a wide range of Python topics and be exposed to a good collection of powerful Python libraries. 

Course Objectives

This course equips participants with Python programming skills to develop useful IoT (Internet of Things) applications.

Course Outline

By the end of the course, participants will be able to: 
• Set up a Python programming environment
• Describe the Python syntax rules
• Use Python to monitor common sensors and control common actuators (used in IoT applications)
• Use Python to collect sensor data (used in IoT applications), store it locally, plot it as graph, and perform data analysis
• Use Python to upload sensor data to cloud and to send notification (in typical IoT applications)

Topic to be covered,

1. Setting up the Python programming environment in a single board computer
2. Python basics
3. Physical computing using Python
4. Sensor data collection, storage, visualisation & simple analytics using Python
5. Sensor data upload to cloud & notification using Python
