That little Arduino board is an interesting device, though I am not a big fan of Arduino. Even as I am stepping into the 32bit world with ARM Cortex M, I find most of the library functions for peripheral initialization not much easier than just initializing the registers themselves. From what I have heard with Arduino, most people struggle once they start to get outside the standard set of libraries, but perhaps I should reserve my judgement until I have tried it.
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.
