There is a growing trend to connect embedded products to the cloud/internet for control and monitoring applications. For embedded design engineers designing their first IoT product, knowing where to start can be a challenge.

Microchip will be holding an IoT cloud workshop in September to provide an overview of how to use the cloud to leverage an embedded product. Topics to be covered in the workshop include a technical background to the IoT, cloud servers, networking requirements, hardware/software requirements for the embedded device and development tools that can be used for IoT application development. A number of hands-on labs will give the attendees experience with setting up and running an embedded application which connects to a cloud server.

Required prior knowledge: knowledge of C programming is mandatory; experience with Microchip MPLAB X IDE and XC32 compiler; basic knowledge of ethernet and Wi-Fi.
