Internet of Things: Setting Up Your DragonBoard™ Development Platform (Coursera)

Do you want to develop skills to prototype mobile-enabled products using state-of-the-art technologies? In this course you will build a hardware and software development environment to guide your journey through the Internet of Things specialization courses. We will use the DragonBoard™ 410c single board computer (SBC).

This is the first in a series of courses where you will learn both the theory and get the hands-on development practice needed to prototype Internet of Things products. This course is suitable for a broad range of learners.

This course is for you if:

• You want to develop hands-on experience with mobile technologies and the Internet

• You want to pivot your career towards the design and development of Internet of Things enabled products

• You are an entrepreneur, innovator or member of a DIY community Learning Goals:

After completing this course, you will be able to:

1. Configure at least one integrated development environment (IDE) for developing software.

2. Make use of git, adb and fastboot to flash multiple OS and repair bricked boards.

3. Install Android 5.1 (Lollipop) and Linux based on Ubuntu.

4. Create, compile and run a Hello World program.

5. Describe the DragonBoard™ 410c peripherals, I/O expansion capabilities, Compute (CPU and Graphics) capabilities, and Connectivity capabilities.

Internet of Things: Setting Up Your DragonBoard™ Development Platform is course 2 of 6 in the Internet of Things Specialization.

This Specialization covers the development of Internet of Things (IoT) products and services—including devices for sensing, actuation, processing, and communication—to help you develop skills and experiences you can employ in designing novel systems. The Specialization has theory and lab sections. In the lab sections you will learn hands-on IoT concepts such as sensing, actuation and communication. In the final Capstone Project, developed in partnership with Qualcomm, you’ll apply the skills you learned on a project of your choice using the DragonBoard 410c platform.
