Session 3: Connecting the unconnected


For everything to be interconnected on the internet the technologies in use need to be configured as well as programmed. Configuration gives you the opportunity to adapt each technology to a given requirement meaning that you may easily adapt the IoE from one smart home to another or one smart city to another as each setting is likely to have subtle differences.

When it comes to programming, don't panic. This isn’t a programming course, but you will be introduced to some interesting and useful principles that apply when thinking about the IoE.
