@Max, Susan: I have heard too that it is very easy to use a Arduino board...I have seen people, having not much of experiences of writing codes for microcontroller (in C or similar) talking about using these boards...what makes it so special? The IDE? Built-in resources in libraries?
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.
