There is a need and people are looking for young talent that has knowledge of this integration of sensors, embedded systems, and communication devices and their protocols. Computer Science topics, specially data aggregation, data analysis, and the subsequent development of algorithms for decision making, are in high demand as well.
Is IoT difficult to learn? Whether one is from a hardware or software background, a school student or an accomplished coder, is it hard to gain expertise in this multi-disciplinary field? Then I will say NO!
There is a platform available which enables you to not only learn, train yourself, and gain expertise but also equips you to shape-up your own innovative ideas , test them, and deploy them as an IoT enabled system.
Please look at such platform https://www.scientechworld.com/pdf/iot-builder.pdf
