Integrating Connected IoT Microcontrollers with Amazon FreeRTOS

by Michael Heydt

This course will teach you the essentials needed to create applications using the Amazon FreeRTOS, including seamless interconnectivity with AWS IoT and other edge devices, as well as creating device shadows and performing over-the-air updates.

What you'll learn

Ever thought, how can you write code for IoT microcontrollers and have them communicate with AWS and also other edge devices? In this course, Integrating Connected IoT Microcontrollers with Amazon FreeRTOS, you’ll learn how to build applications with Amazon FreeRTOS that can communicate with the cloud and other edge devices. First, you’ll discover how to configure Amazon FreeRTOS to communicate with AWS IoT. Next, you’ll explore how to write applications for FreeRTOS, including multitasking, inter-task messaging and synchronization, handling button presses, and reading data from sensors. Finally, you'll learn about communications with AWS IoT using MQTT, how to create device shadows and identities with Amazon FreeRTOS, and perform over-the-air updates. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of Amazon FreeRTOS needed to build cloud and edge connected IoT things.
