IoT Programming and Big Data
By Curtin University
Learn how to apply software solutions for different systems and Big Data needs to your IoT designs.
About this course
The Internet of Things is creating massive quantities of data, and managing and analyzing it requires a unique approach to programming and statistics for distributed data sources.

This course will teach introductory programming concepts that allow connection to, and implementation of some functionality on, IoT devices, using the Python programming language. In addition, students will learn how to use Python to process text log files, such as those generated automatically by IoT sensors and other network-connected systems.

Learners do not need prior programming experience to undertake this course, and will not learn a specific programming language - however, Python will be used for demonstrations. This course will focus on learning by working through realistic examples.

What you'll learn
  • Appreciate the software needs of an IoT project
  • Understand how data is managed in an IoT network
  • Apply software solutions for different systems and Big Data to your IoT concept designs
  • Create Python scripts to manage large data files collected from sensor data and interact with the real world via actuators and other output devices.

In this capstone project, you will undertake challenges to design, implement, and document a big data solution based on what you have learned.

What you'll learn
Apply the big data skills you have learned in the Microsoft Professional Program for Big Data to build a big data solution.

Learn how big data is driving organizational change and essential analytical tools and techniques, including data mining and PageRank algorithms.
About this course
Organizations now have access to massive amounts of data and it's influencing the way they operate. They are realizing in order to be successful they must leverage their data to make effective business decisions.

In this course, part of the Big Data MicroMasters program, you will learn how big data is driving organizational change and the key challenges organizations face when trying to analyze massive data sets.

You will learn fundamental techniques, such as data mining and stream processing. You will also learn how to design and implement PageRank algorithms using MapReduce, a programming paradigm that allows for massive scalability across hundreds or thousands of servers in a Hadoop cluster. You will learn how big data has improved web search and how online advertising systems work.

By the end of this course, you will have a better understanding of the various applications of big data methods in industry and research.

What you'll learn
  • Knowledge and application of MapReduce
  • Understanding the rate of occurrences of events in big data
  • How to design algorithms for stream processing and counting of frequent elements in Big Data
  • Understand and design PageRank algorithms
  • Understand underlying random walk algorithms
