This is an introductory course on IoT. However, this is not an introductory course on Raspberry Pi. This course is ideal for those who are interested in exploring the possibilities of Internet of Things using Raspberry Pi. The course assumes basic knowledge of computer hardware and software. However, knowledge of Operating system Installation and networking will help you in getting up to speed.
You will learn how to access the complete Graphical User Interface of your Raspberry Pi in your Windows computer. You don't need to buy a Monitor, Keyboard or Mouse separately for this mini kit. By which you can possibly save $100 or more by substituting your personal laptop instead of buying separate peripheral devices. The idea is to reduce costs and use existing devices to interact with the mini kit.
You will also learn how to eliminate the use of flash drive and transfer the files wirelessly between Raspberry Pi and Windows computer and vice-versa.
Finally, you will learn how to deploy the program remotely and access the GPIO pins. You will execute the program from your Windows computer and the output can be seen afar with peripheral devices connected to Raspberry Pi 2.
