Rotterdam 6 — 7 Dec It's time for a system reboot.

Designing the IoT (Software) Engineer

Thursday, December 6, 13:00-15:00h

With the current and future influences of IoT in the society, industry and the environment we need specialists, engineers, that develop and deliver the ‘things’. Although we are still trying to define the term IoT, we know already for the best part the competences and skills these engineers need to have to perform. Or do we? The workshop strives to get an insight on the subjects every (future) IoT software engineer should have in his/her portfolio when starting in the industry. Join us if you have ideas about those subjects like programming, mathematics, physics, electronics, security etc and become an influencer of the skillset of these future engineers.
