Course Information


Who will present the webinars?

Dr Geoffrey Jenkins has been working in IoT for most of the past 30 years, in between embarking on digs in the middle east and translating ancient Syriac and Aramaic papyri.

Currently the Senior Pre Sales Engineer for KORE Wireless, Geoff has created many IoT applications, traced faults in other users’ applications, and got them up and running again more times than we’ve had hot breakfasts.

Shane Murphy has come to IT Masters after 25+ years in IoT and its forbears. He co-founded Australia’s first and largest independent network provider and has seen more pet tracking applications that he ever thought possible.
