Smart devices form the bedrock of our connected world, and yet they can be a daunting place to get started. Building practical devices requires a multi-disciplinary set of skills and basic knowledge that may seem like an arcane art, but with a proper grounding in fundamentals you can build prototype smart devices with ease. In this session participants will be given a crash course in Electronics and Electrical Engineering concepts that are the foundational knowledge of all smart devices. After the sessions, participants will be able to apply the concepts to building their own prototype smart devices, and expand on those skills with additional projects that they can build.
