I recently stumbled upon an interesting article focused on a coding kit that teaches kids how to code using by using an IoT device in the form of a wizard’s wand from one of my favorite franchises of all time, Harry Potter!
Kano, a company that focuses on developing educational products that teach fun ways to use technology, recently created The Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit. Using the Internet of Things and a mobile application can build a wand, learn to code spells, and wave your wand using specific motions to make your code come to life in the form of on-screen animations. This could attract a brand new audience to the coding community and teach valuable new skills. The release of this kit could lead to another successful product from Kano that I cannot wait to see for myself.
Additionally as technology continues to improve, many parents are looking for ways to get their children involved and this is a great fun way to do it! As well new software continues to release and teach various difficulties of code for anyone to jump into. Some of the best coding applications that I personally use are Codecademy, Grasshopper, and Pluralsight. If you are a beginner or just want to brush up on your skills, these are the perfect places to start.

IoT isn’t just for wands and learning to code. IoT devices are being used in the enterprise & mid-market businesses world to transform and improve the way they operate. Check out this video on how we helped a National Delivery Service to see IOT live in action!
