Thingsquare Launches World’s First Internet of Things professional Training Program

January 29, 2013

STOCKHOLM, January 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Leading Internet of Things startup Thingsquare today announced the launch of the
world’s first professional training program for the Internet of Things. The program is
aimed at IT decision makers and developers, who want to get a broad overview of how the
Internet of Things can drive their business and who want to learn how to quickly develop
world-class Internet of Things products.

The training program covers Internet of Things business concepts, technology,
software, and cloud connectivity. Like the Internet, the Internet of Things relies heavily
on open source software and the training program therefore has a strong open source focus.

“Thingsquare’s mission is to make the Internet of Things easy to build and to use, but
the Internet of Things isn’t quite there yet,” said Adam Dunkels, chief architect and
co-founder of Thingsquare. “With the Thingsquare training program, product developers will
get hands-on knowledge that will let them get to market faster.”

“Our training program lets IT managers, CEOs, CTOs, and CIOs understand how the
Internet of Things will affect their bottom line,” said Roger Bergdahl, CEO and co-founder
of Thingsquare. “The Internet of Things holds a tremendous market potential that is
waiting to be unleashed.”

Two courses are already scheduled for March in Stockholm, Sweden. Schedules and prices
are available on the Thingsquare website.
