Attend a LoRa® Boot Camp

Hosted by Semtech, Microchip, RF Laboratories Inc., and the University of Central Florida

Join us for an all-day, hands-on boot camp to learn more about LoRa devices and the LoRaWAN® protocol, and how it can enable your IoT solutions.

In this one-day boot camp, you'll receive an in-depth technical overview of LoRa and LoRaWAN, hear about real-life use cases, see LoRaWAN partner presentations, and dive into the technical aspects of the technology. In addition, you'll take part in a hands-on session to learn how to get your IoT solutions up and running.

After February 21, the R34 kit required for the afternoon labs can be purchased directly from DigiKey under the following part number. Express shipping will be required in order to have the R34 kit available for the February 27 Boot Camp.
