This IOT LAB BOOK is primarily compiled to support the university courses on Internet of Things: Systems Design at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. But you can follow the tutorials without attending the course. This lab book guides you through a series of labs. Each lab has its objectives. It is expected that you should be able to complete each lab session within two hours (most of the time, much less). This lab book does assume that you have some amount of networking knowledge. Further, it is important to mention that IoT, by nature, is a broad subject. Therefore, in a few lab sessions, we cannot teach you all the topics in-depth. For example, Arduino programming use C/C++ programming languages. However, we do not expect you to be an expert on C/C++ to follow the lab session. However, if you have some background, you will find some known concepts in action and feel comfortable. If you have never seen C/C++ before, you will, of course, feel nervous and sometimes will feel lost.
Throughout the lab book, we provided explanations, external links, and references to reading material. Especially if you do not understand certain programming tasks such as C/C++ it may be worth reading those links. Further, these links will guide you to explore the universe of IoT on your own, beyond the labs we have provided here. Finally, we want to emphasise that this is not a programming course. Therefore, we do not try to teach you a particular programming language (though we try to provide as many links and references to develop your skills). It is up to you to develop the gaps in your knowledge by referring to the links we provided.
