Workshop // How to Demystify the Internet of Things

August 14, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Internet of Things Event in Nairobi

Raise your hand if you’ve heard of IoT. I’m assuming your hand is raised…because it’s been a trending topic for every industry, from manufacturing to life sciences to home appliances and everything in between.

Ok, so you’ve heard of it–but I’m guessing if I asked for a show of virtual hands as to who could confidently explain what IoT is and how it works and affects you, the result would be a little lackluster. Dr. Jacton Opiyo provides a structured view of IoT — what it is, how to use it, and why you should care about IoT.

So, while the technical definition of IoT is a little elusive, the use cases are anything but. It’s not hard to imagine how this tech could be implemented in any industry, for any product–we’re already seeing how it’s making everyday life easier for those implementing IoT enabled devices around their homes.

Join Dr Jacton Opiyo, Managing Director, IoT Academy Kenya on 14th August at our Karen Space from 3pm as he takes us through a workshop on how to demystify the Internet of Things. As part of the workshop Dr Opiyo will also delve into few top ways the Internet of Things will affect your businesses, current uses of IoT, as well as what the future looks like for this exciting wireless tech.

RSVP your attendance here!
