Thanks to your input and feedback, we have completely overhauled the LoRa Developer Portal to make it easier for you to find what you need when using LoRa® and LoRaWAN® to create your Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.
In an effort to provide more great content and guidance to developers, the Semtech’s LoRa developer ecosystem team is proud to launch our new Learning Center!The Learning Center consists of three main pillars for developers:
Semtech’s LoRa® developer ecosystem team is always listening to our developers to better understand your wants and needs. We work to create content and tools that help you in your efforts to bring Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to life with LoRa chipsets and the open LoRaWAN® protocol.
Semtech Proof-of-Concept Kits
The Semtech Smart Building and Asset Tracking Kits have been designed so that the value provided by LoRaWAN® in the smart building and asset tracking spaces can be easily validated by customers who need to quickly demonstrate the value of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions in these verticals.
The Semtech Developer Ecosystem team is always looking for new ways to help enrich the developer community. It is with this in mind that we are getting ready to launch a new facet of our LoRa® Developer Portal, the Developer Showcase.
The Developer Showcase will be an area where developers can submit tips, tricks and best practices on how to solve LoRaWAN® application and deployment issues. We will back this launch with a marketing campaign, and share these ideas with the world.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is all about connecting devices together to let users, and each other, know what’s going on.
What is my temperature? Where am I? What is the gas level? How are the acoustics near me? What level of vibration am I experiencing? And on and on and on.
While the range of devices that need to communicate their status varies greatly, there can be some commonalities. These devices are often in an area where connecting to mains-supplied power is not an option, so they will probably be either battery-powered or use scavenged energy to power themselves.
Don’t misunderstand me, there are use cases for things like self-driving cars and telemedicine that require much more detailed conversations between devices and exchange much more data, but for the majority of IoT devices, they really don’t send a lot of data at any one time. They just need to ‘phone home’ occasionally to report their status or an event.

So, you take advantage of every opportunity you can find…and this one is a pretty nice one.
Momenta Ventures has created the The LoRaWAN Startup Challenge to recognize the most-innovative early-stage startups leveraging low power, wide area networks (LPWAN), specifically LoRaWAN-based technologies.
In today’s electronic economy, developers are seen as the grease which allows the wheel of innovation to keep turning. Because of this, any platform that is based on technology adoption requires a strong developer community to support it. I’m happy to announce that Semtech is doing our part to help foster the LPWAN and IoT developer communities…welcome to Semtech’s LoRa Developer Portal!
