Didn't qualify either. Not quite sure how? I signed up for the course less than 10 minutes after I received the original email about it. Then I logged in at close to 8am EST both days of the courses and refreshed ever 30 minutes or so. Figured I'd be in the first 100. So disappointed. Can't find one in stock anywhere. Might have to just listen to the next 3 sessions.
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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
