Currently any new IoT development must be done on PaaS (Platform as a service) IoT infrastructure. Leading PaaS IoT systems include, Microsoft Azure, AWS IoT (Amazon), Google IoT cloud and Siemens Mindsphere etc. It’s also important for the developers to know associated PaaS functions necessary to connect IoT data to other ecosystem. In this course a customer will be trained hands on with a Raspberry Pi, a multi-sensor TI sensor Tag chip (which has 10 sensors built in – motion, ambient temperature, humidity, pressure, light meter etc.). A trainee will learn basics of all IoT functions and how to implement them in AWS IoT PaaS cloud using Lambda functions.




  • Basics of IoT architecture and functions
  • “Things”, “Sensors”, Internet and the mapping between business functions of IoT
  • Essential of all IoT software components- hardware, firmware, middleware, cloud and mobile app
  • IoT functions- Fleet manager, Data visualization, SaaS based FM and DV, alert/alarm, sensor onboarding, “thing” onboarding, geo-fencing
  • Basics of IoT device communication with cloud with MQTT.
  • Connecting IoT devices to AWS with MQTT (AWS IoT Core).
  • Connecting AWS IoT core with AWS Lambda function for computation and data storage using DynamoDB.
  • Connecting Raspberry PI with AWS IoT core and simple data communication.
  • Hands on with Raspberry PI and AWS IoT Core to build a smart device.
  • Sensor data visualization and communication with web interface.

IOT applications

Palaniswamy Suresh Kumar - Makers' Academy

The trainer is good - willing to share, ask question and answer queries. The trainer's first hand sharing on the different types of IoT, different applications (e.g., in durians), the demonstration parts.

Makers' Academy

I genuinely liked the new technology.


Practice parts

- Instytut Lotnictwa

The training is practical and it is good for understanding how to use AWS step by step


That it was all new technology and offerings to myself. After being shown how quick and easy it is to set up certain services in AWS, I feel I could get a real benefit out of it for quick project and proposal prototyping.

MDA Systems Ltd.

Fernando knew the products and how to use them. His willingness and friendliness to assist in the hands-on lab was great.

MDA Systems Ltd.

There was a good general pass over what seemed like the most important parts of AWS. The instructor was open to questions and addressed areas of AWS that were not part of the outline based on our questions.

MDA Systems Ltd.

I liked getting to understand the breadth of the services offered by AWS and gaining a better understanding of their pricing model for each of those services.

William Crowdis - MDA Systems Ltd.

Thought it was a good overview of a lot of different services. Liked the detail on IAS.

MDA Systems Ltd.

Explaining why it's financially viable to do these things

MDA Systems Ltd.

It provided context for the things we do in AWS.

MDA Systems Ltd.

Everything. I had played around with AWS before but just on my own personal time. The training really brought everything together, with real world examples and how many individual pieces can be bolted together for a applicable solution.

Matt Sartain - MDA Systems Ltd.

Hands-on labs

MDA Systems Ltd.

examples, preparation of materials, level of knowledge of trainer, excellent communication

Michał Krasucki - Instytut Lotnictwa

The course could be tailored to suit your needs and objectives. It can also be delivered on your premises if preferred.
