@Jacob_Beningo: btw, do you know why is it that you're so time-confined? (I'm familiar with the designnews series, so it's not new to me, but I never quite understood why quite so very limited, particularly as clarity of educational instruction seems like it would be the paramount consideration)
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.
