@Jacob Beningo - Another suggestion I don't see in your slides is to check for chip errata before making the final choice. There could be few or many, and they may be a major problem, or not affect your project at all.
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.
