The Things Academy Hands on with LoRaWAN


No programming experience required. Basic IT knowledge, experience with Arduino and Raspberry Pi is helpful.
Required hardware: See course description


Start your professional LoRaWAN® career now with The Things Academy (Hardware required)Get ready for 5 days of intense learning, hands-on workshops, and building real use cases using LoRaWAN technology. During the 1-week pressure cooker, you will gain theoretical knowledge of the LoRa® technology and LoRaWAN standard, and you will learn how to put the theory in practice through joining hands-on workshops.Instructors include IoT experts who have seen IoT projects containing hundreds of thousands of sensors succeed and fail. All instructors are committed to provide you with the insights we’ve learned over the course of the past year, preventing you from making the same mistakes.For whom: The Things Summer Academy is a week-long summer school, designed for ambitious people who are planning to kickstart their career in IoT. No knowledge of LoRaWAN is required, basic understanding of (web) development and/or basic electronics is preferable.What we ask from participants: We ask participants to be dedicated for the full week. To listen to the theory presented by the experts, and to join in with the hands-on workshops. Access to a hardware kit is required (see bottom, and see the final lecture for a PDF with links)What you will learn?Theory about the fundamentals of LoRa and LoRaWANUnderstanding the principles of wireless communicationHow to securely connect a LoRaWAN device to any LoRaWAN Network ServerSending uplinks and downlinksBasics about LoRaWAN securityHow to set up a gateway using LoRa Basics StationThe inner-workings of The Things Stack (the technology used by The Things Network)Integrating sensor data with third part platforms through MQTT and HTTP WebhooksStoring, visualizing and processing sensor data in IoT platformsWhy join this course?High-quality content, created by a team of LoRaWAN expertsHands-on workshops with live Q&APersonal mentor to support your throughout the weekBecome part of a peer-group for discussing, interacting and reviewing one another’s workAccess to discounted hardware and softwareOfficial Certificate upon completion (add-on for €99)Invitation to The Things Alumni NetworkOn-demand content after the summer courseThe Things Summer Course Instructors:Johan Stokking, Tech Lead at The Things NetworkOlivier Seller, co-inventor of LoRa technology & Technical Fellow at SemtechSebastian Romero, Design Lead at ArduinoNick McCloud, IoT entrepreneur & The Things Network Forum moderatorJP Meijers, IoT developer & creator of TTN MapperXose Pérez, IoT developer & initiator The Things Network BarcelonaMarc Pous, Developer Advocate at BalenaBen Olayinka, technical writer at The Things NetworkLaurens Slats, developer evangelist at The Things NetworkRequired HardwareFor participating in the Academy, specific hardware is needed.
