Online courses about smart cities

I think it’s about time to revive this blog 🙂 Hopefully I’ll start posting more regularly from now on.

I’ll start with my new interest, smart cities 🙂 What is a smart city? In short, it’s a city in which various information and communication technology and Internet of Things solutions were implemented in order to improve the quality of life. It has a wide range of applications: from real-time air quality monitoring to apps for city officials to interact directly with the community, to traffic management and loads of others.

I’ve recently become interested in the field and started learning more and more about it online. Apart for cool app ideas, I’ve also looked into online courses in order to get a strong background in the subject.

So, inspired by the structure of The Dual Master’s in Sustainable Smart Cities from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and Staffordshire University, I looked for free online courses and came up with the following list.

The list is available on GitHub. Star

I’ll keep adding to it as I find new online resources. And also use it to track my progress. 🙂

Do you know any good smart cities books, online classes or other useful resources?
