Max - Yes. I saw that blog. I do love my PIC MCUs, but they drive me nuts too. There are so many variations, that I'm sure could be consolidated down to about a thrid. And many, many of them are almost exactly the same as some other, but close enough to require far mor research than switching from one product line menber to another should take.
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.
