Internet of things (IoT) and digitalization of industries are changing the skills required from newly graduated engineers. To truly master these skills, they must be included in the curriculum, and a platform on which students can create IoT projects is needed. The research of IoT and related areas also benefits from such a platform. The platform presented in this paper focuses on a simple coffee maker but applies techniques and tools which are also used in larger scale projects, thereby making the system a valid solution for education. The devices and tools applied must be selected to satisfy education and research requirements. The proposed platform is built on IBM Cloud, and it uses Raspberry Pi as an edge device. Hands-on experience with a real IoT platform brings definite advantages that may otherwise be difficult to achieve.
