What is covered in the course?
In this course we intend to leverage the capability of LiveCode programming environment to combine hardware with software. The course guides students towards a large-scale IoT project.
Instructors will use Smart Home as a targeted scenario to inspire students interests yet make it fun and practical throughout the course. The students will also learn how to leverage LiveCode’s mobile application development capability and apply remote Arduino commands to hardware to automate complex tasks.
