Well, the memory skills issue is certainly a debateable subject. The issue is that the universities are not generating folks with skills like memory conservation. The use of VMs encourages the dynamic creation and deletion of objects that ultimately leads to excessive memory use and potential errors. The dependency on the garbage collection cycle is also fraught with peril for safety-critical applications.
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.
