Max - re "someone comment" That's what brought it back to the top of my mind too. It's definately not a technical manual, but I found the historical component to be pretty interesting and I liked the narative in general.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
