I just attended the OAT developer training course in Paris a few weeks ago, and I came away with a lot of good knowledge. It was 5 days long and the overview of what was covered is listed below:
Day1 - Open ATÂ® Framework and Open ATÂ® Features, AT Commands, Timers
Day2 - Flash, A&D, GPRS and Call Related API’s
Day3 - Flow Control Manager, BUS and Safe Mode Services
Day4 - GPIO related API’s. Introduction to TCP/IP and ED Soft
Day5 - ED (TCP/IP) library features - Dialing, TCP/UDP sockets and FTP services
The curriculum could change, but the topics above are what we covered. Each day was centered on lectures and programming exercises. We did between 1 and 3 exercises each day, depending on the topics. All programming exercises were done on Wavecom development boards using a live network so you could actually see your application work. The guy who taught the course was very knowledgeable not only about the Wavecom stuff, but also about the tools and C in general.
Some topics I thought would be difficult were made easy, while others were tricky. It was good to be introduced to all of the featuresâ€”even the ones Iâ€™ve never usedâ€”because you never know when youâ€™ll need them. I picked up some tips from the other attendees as well. If you already have experience developing commercial products using OAT, some of this course may be basic for you. But if you are just starting with OAT, like I was, the course is a great jump-start.
I believe there are training sessions coming up in Paris and San Diego, CA before the end of the year, but you should talk to your WVCM contact to get exact dates and pricing.
