Bluetooth SIG brings Innovation Training Series to London
The Bluetooth SIG has announced a new low-cost training series targeting developers interested in getting into the Internet of Things.
The global Innovation Series will arrive in London on 14th September 2015. It offers developers the practical, in-depth knowledge needed to bring connected products and applications to market faster than ever before, according to the SIG.
Errett Kroeter, senior director of marketing at the Bluetooth SIG, said: “The SIG wants to empower developers around the world with the knowledge to bring their latest innovations to market quickly and inexpensively using Bluetooth technology. The Innovation Series is one of the many ways we make that possible.”
The one-day session will cover:
- Bluetooth Smart fundamentals
- Testing tools
- Best practices on adding connectivity to everyday objects
- Training from Nordic Semiconductor and Frontline
- Full introduction to the SIG’s new software development toolkit – Bluetooth Developer Studio – that reduces Bluetooth education time by up to 50% and shortens development time by as much as 70%
“Our goal from day one was to understand Bluetooth technology from a developer’s point of view and then create tools and other resources to make it dead simple for any developer to implement it in their product or app,” said Steve Hegenderfer, director of developer programs at the Bluetooth SIG.
“Bluetooth is key to our connected lives, and will be an integral part of the Internet of Things as we move forward. You don’t need to be a wireless or Bluetooth expert to get great value out of this training. If you want to be a part of the connected world as a developer, we’ll introduce you to everything you need to get started during the Innovation Series.”
