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.
