Connecting your IoT Device with LoRaWAN™ to The Things Network (TTN)


The long range and low-power capability of LoRaWANTM combined with the flexibility and ease of use of The Thing Network’s open source data network makes this one of the easiest ways for an embedded engineer to create an end-to-end IoT solution.

In this hands-on workshop, attendees will learn how to send sensor data from a low cost, low-power sensor all the way to a user application. The class will walk through connecting a LoRaWAN-enabled endpoint through a LoRaWAN gateway to The Things Network’s servers and finally to an end user application.

Upon completion, attendees will be equipped to deploy each piece of this IoT solution.



Attendees will be provided with a sensor board for use during the workshop.


Attendees may purchase the sensor board separately:


Attendees are expected to download courseware and install software onto their laptop computers before attending the event. Instructions and courseware link will be emailed to registrants before the workshop.
