Crusty - I'm dreading the day I have to move to Win8. Maybe by that time, they will have fixed it or moved on to Win9. I have to upgrade my daughter's PC and am going to buy Win7. I'd love to hear your thougts on 8 once you get used to it. My knowledge of it dates back to the pre-release candidates, so I'm out of date.
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.
