Course Description:

The DGLux5 – Level 1 training is an instructor-led course that provides comprehensive hands-on education in the features and programming of the DGLux5 development environment. This class is structured to offer hands-on practical instruction through the construction of a fully working project by the end of the class series that would enable a student to start building a project on their own following the class using the IDE in conjunction with the DSA Framework. The format will consist of short lectures followed by exercises. Each student will learn the necessary vocabulary, programming concepts and technical knowledge required to develop and support complex IoE applications.

Attendees to this in-depth course will learn how to navigate the DGLux5 IDE, add and create widgets and assets, bind to data, visualize data in multiple forms, and use the data flow module to parse and modify various data streams from internal and external data sources using DSLinks. Additionally, individuals will learn the concepts surrounding the DSA open-source framework and the use of DSLinks within their DGLux5 application.
