Well, I hope you enjoyed our course on the Internet of Things. I definitely had a blast putting it together. In this course we introduced you to the concept of the Internet of Things. At its core we collect information through sensors attached to devices which are then sent over a network to be stored, analyzed, and further actions to be taken on them. The device is a thing in the Internet of Things.

A device can pretty much be any object you can attach a sensor to. There are many industries which are taking advantage of the Internet of Things, including medical, manufacturing, and retail. We continue to see our homes and cities further integrating the Internet of Things with new solutions to improve the quality and experience of our lives. As the earth's population continues to grow and migrate towards urban environments, we will utilize the Internet of Things technologies to improve sustainability in smart cities. We introduced you to systems architecture for the Internet of Things along with the various components and networking protocols.

We spent some time working through a series of demos on the Internet of Things platforms. I wanted to help identify the major players in the Internet of Things industry to assist you with jumpstarting your development career. That wraps up our course on the introduction to the Internet of Things. I'm Rich Sargenti and it's been an honor to join you on this journey.
