[ Home | Schedule |Syllabus | Course description ]
Prerequisites: 95-712 Object-oriented Programming in Java or permission of the instructor.
Course Description: This course is designed as a programming intensive introduction to the internet of things and IoT related web technologies. We will study and build software programs primarily using Java. We will consider and work with two styles of client side programming - programming within the browser and programming stand alone clients. On the server, we will program using protocols such as AJAX and Websockets. Along the way, we will study several different markup languages. These include XHTML, RSS, RDF, JSON and JSON-LD. IoT specific technologies that will be discussed include MQTT, XMPP, IBM’s Node Red, Apache Edgent and CoAP. One of our aims will be to consider how good ideas in the design of the web might be extended to include the internet of things. The primary readings in the course will come from journal articles. The prerequisite for this course is 95-712 Object Programming in Java and this is a technical course that focusses on technical problems and their solutions. However, many students, primarily interested in business problems, have also found this course to be quite valuable.
