IBM has noted that to be able to take the course basic programming knowledge is assumed within the languages of Python and Javascript.

"This course takes you through a guided experience in building your first IoT solution using cool, inexpensive and easily obtained hardware like a Raspberry-Pi and SenseHat, using developer tools like Node-RED and of course, using the IBM Watson IoT Platform," IBM said.
