What you'll learn

  • Learn what has worked and what hasn't for open data in the IoT
  • Explore technology stacks on the connectivity side, including trade-offs between LoRa, 5g, etc.


The Internet of Things is much more than a license to print money. It gives us the ability to understand the world around us in unprecedented detail. Yodit Stanton shines a light on the real IoT revolution quietly happening away from the spotlight and marketing dollars. Yodit explains how makers are using open data to solve real needs in multiple contexts, looking at examples from all over the world where communities and businesses are deploying sensors around problems from air and water quality to mobility and parking. Best of all, these datasets are published with open data licenses, enabling citizens, journalists, and everyone else to understand what is going on around them. Yodit also explores the adoption of open connectivity protocols such as LoRa for community-driven projects.
