@keyoke - datasheet shows the STM32F429 part is available in a QFP package. For breadboarding you'd need to use a DIP adapter pcb and careful soldering :) . For the hobbyist, or even just us older folks, things are getting difficult.
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.
