Adafruit.io usage in academic courses

Post by gslm »

Hello Adafruit.io team!

Is the Adafruit.io free plan elligible for usage in academic courses free of cost?

I was considering using your platform to demonstrate a few IoT functionalities (using the dashboard) during an PostGrad IoT course for about 20 students, who would create free accounts during the course.

I found no issues reading the FAQ's , but would still like to confirm if this is correct with your team.

Yes, it is OK to use IO in academic courses using the free accounts.

The only issue that you may run across is if everyone is on the same IP address and sending a lot of data (everyone at their max throttle). You could see throttling issues. We haven't heard a lot of this happening though.

I see. In this case however the course would de remote, so the throttling would most likely be a non-issue.
Thanks for your reply an for making a great platform!
