Start your professional LoRaWAN® career now with The Things Academy (Hardware required)

Get ready for 5 days of intense learning, hands-on workshops, and building real use cases using LoRaWAN technology. During the 1-week pressure cooker, you will gain theoretical knowledge of the LoRa® technology and LoRaWAN standard, and you will learn how to put the theory in practice through joining hands-on workshops.

Instructors include IoT experts who have seen IoT projects containing hundreds of thousands of sensors succeed and fail. All instructors are committed to provide you with the insights we’ve learned over the course of the past year, preventing you from making the same mistakes.

For whom: The Things Summer Academy is a week-long summer school, designed for ambitious people who are planning to kickstart their career in IoT. No knowledge of LoRaWAN is required, basic understanding of (web) development and/or basic electronics is preferable.

What we ask from participants: We ask participants to be dedicated for the full week. To listen to the theory presented by the experts, and to join in with the hands-on workshops. Access to a hardware kit is required (see bottom, and see the final lecture for a PDF with links)

What you will learn?

Theory about the fundamentals of LoRa and LoRaWAN

Understanding the principles of wireless communication

How to securely connect a LoRaWAN device to any LoRaWAN Network Server

Sending uplinks and downlinks

Basics about LoRaWAN security

How to set up a gateway using LoRa Basics Station

The inner-workings of The Things Stack (the technology used by The Things Network)

Integrating sensor data with third part platforms through MQTT and HTTP Webhooks

Storing, visualizing and processing sensor data in IoT platforms

Why join this course?

High-quality content, created by a team of LoRaWAN experts

Hands-on workshops with live Q&A

Personal mentor to support your throughout the week

Become part of a peer-group for discussing, interacting and reviewing one another’s work

Access to discounted hardware and software

Official Certificate upon completion (add-on for €99)

Invitation to The Things Alumni Network
