About this course

5G is an immesely disruptive technology that is progressively deeply transforming our world, and we have merely grasp the benefits that 5G will directly or indirectly provide. This course allows in an easy, descriptive way to iniciate your knowlegde on the development of EVOLVED-5G NetApps to facilitate 5G Programmability and the exploitation of 5G to provide benefits in any area, from industry to city services, that has an important impact on quotidian aspects in our daily life.

What I will learn

Along the course you will learn:

  • What is 5G programmability and which are the huge advantages of its exploitation
  • What is a 5G NetApp, its highly innovative approach and the significant benefits from NetApp application
  • How to develop a NetApp
  • How to use the most important software tools that can assist you in the development a NetApp
  • How to install and use the EVOLVED-5G SDK for creating NetApps
  • How to start coding your NetApp from a generic NetApp template
  • How to use SDK libraries for exploiting 5G Core functionality in an easy manner


This online course has no special prerequisites, but programming skills and some knowlege on Python is desirable, as well as 5G technical background.
