Introduction to FIWARE

Train the Trainer Course

Train the Trainer course that will introduce EDIHs and their representatives to the FIWARE Foundation, which provides a suite of open-source tools for Smart City and Smart Verticals data management.

Over 200 cities, regions and public entities have already integrated these tools into their Public Service smart management systems; thus, a working knowledge of the NGSI API implemented by FIWARE is a critical skill for those technicians hoping to work in the Smart City industry, either as part of a public entity integrating these technologies or as a worker at a company providing said integration.

The course will showcase the usage of FIWARE tools in Smart City systems, using the Badajoz Smart Province use-case as an example.

The course aims to show EDIHs how to explain FIWARE tools and opportunities to their customers – to inspire their uptake and use.

Course structure:

  1. Introduction to the FIWARE Ecosystem: its aims, features and strategy
  2. The Badajoz Smart Province use-case. Why FIWARE?
  3. Structure of a FIWARE Smart Solution architecture — layer based structure
  4. FIWARE suite of software enablers — building blocks for smart solutions
  5. Badajoz Smart Province: further analysis.
  6. How's and where's — the FIWARE catalogue and documentation.
