Engineering applications for the Internet of Things raises a spectrum of relevant challenges, concerning both the individual/micro level – about the design of the (smart) software running on embedded devices – and the system/macro level – about the design IoT applications as (smart) distributed systems. The course aims at providing an overview of the key concepts, software architectures, and techniques relevant to the design and development of applications for the IoT, both from the micro- and the macro-level perspectives.
