In response to demand expressed by its community, Arduino has initiated the Arduino Certification Program to officially certify Arduino users, and confirm their expertise in key areas.
Arduino has previously declared its mission to make technology accessible to everyone, and into the hands of every student and educator. and to this end had established Arduino Education. Its team of education experts, content developers, engineers and interaction designer is focused on developing the next generation of STEAM systems- integrating Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math — and supporting the needs of educators and students throughout the educational journey.
Its education programs…
“The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.”
– An unnecessarily technical explanation of IoT
There are four stages in developing an IoT device
Microsoft’s official description:
Windows 10 IoT Core is a version of Windows 10 that is optimised for smaller devices with or without a display, and that runs on the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3, Arrow DragonBoard 410c & MinnowBoard MAX. Windows 10 IoT Core utilizes the rich, extensible Universal Windows Platform (UWP) API for building great solutions.
On March 2nd 2018, Google announced their Machine Learning Crash Course (MLCC) with the world. MLCC is one of the most popular courses created for Google engineers. The course develops intuition around fundamental machine learning concepts.
Google wants to teach more people AI and machine learning with a free online course.
Machine learning and AI are some of the biggest topics in the tech world right now, and Google is looking to make those fields more accessible to more people with its new Learn with Google AI website.
Google brings Android and its ecosystem to the development of IoT devices. Developers will write applications to these devices similarly to how they write for mobile ones.
Google has included some of the main Brillotechnologies into their mobile operating system, calling the new solution targeted at IoT devices Android Things. This embedded operating system contains, besides the usual Android API and the library to access various Google services, a new library called Things Support Library which comes with two main features: a Peripheral I/O API enabling access to sensors and actuators through several protocols and interfaces (GPIO, PWM, I2C, SPI…
PHPoC (PHP on Chip): a programming language and an IoT hardware platform.
PHPoC is a programming language developed based on widely-used PHP language, that makes it become not only a Web development language but also the general-purpose programming language for IoT. The syntax is almost the same as PHP, but adapted for the embedded system. PHPoC inherits almost core functions from PHP. Especially, PHPoC adds new functions, which are used to interact with hardware peripherals such as I/O, UART, I2C, SPI, ADC, TIMER/COUNTER, RTC and so on.
In other words, PHPoC is an expansion of PHP on a small chip…
Where is Arduino now and where is it going in the future?
In this article I want to educate fellow Android Developers regarding the Android certification program by Google.
Associate Android Developer was announced during Google I/O 2016 by Google Developer Training Team. Their aim was to “close the gap between developers launching their careers and employers.”
By passing this exam and earning the Associate Android Developer Certification, candidates are able to demonstrate tested knowledge of Android Development and the ability to perform general development tasks.
