Turn Your IoT Product Idea Into Reality – 7 Part Workshop Series

March 26 @ 9:00 am - June 18 @ 11:00 am


One of the outcomes of 2020 is that it acted as a catalyst for digital transformation.  A January 16, 2021 Economist article titled, “Why a Dawn of Technological Optimism is Breaking”, writes there are positive signs of a new era of meaningful, technological progress.  The investment in technology and research and development in the fourth quarter was higher than it has been in 10 years.  “Investors’ enthusiasm for technology now extends to medical diagnostics, logistics, biotechnology and semiconductors.  Such is the market’s optimism for electric vehicles that Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk, who also runs a rocket firm, is the world’s richest man.” (https://www.economist.com/leaders/2021/01/16/why-a-dawn-of-technological-optimism-is-breaking)

It feels more like spinning that pivoting these days.  Intellectual curiosity and a perpetual learning-orientation are necessary to thrive in a world that’s always changing.  If certainty can be found, it’s that we’ll need to work together to create new sources of value.  The 1920’s were a time of unprecedented change, which ignited a decade of exploration and growth.  Powerful tools such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and natural language processing means our ability to solve real problems, is only defined by the limits of our imagination.

Sound business fundamentals are critical for ensuring the success of new companies and products.  It takes a strong understanding of the technologies involved in bringing a viable product to market.  Initiating a new IoT device is a complex process that requires expertise in a variety of digital competencies including design, embedded software, cloud infrastructure and user interfaces. 

This Silicon Halton IoT P2P course simplifies the IoT value creation process and demonstrates how to bring your new idea to market.

7 Part Series – Sessions Starting in March

From initial prototyping, embedded software and connectivity, and cloud infrastructure, to product design, market testing, and scaling, we will walk you through each step of the journey.  Each session will include best practices and instruction in the creation of an example IoT device, followed by a working session with technical support for any device or project you are working on.
