@kfield "No one wants to take on an employee they have to train"
When I started my first job as a member of a team designing CPUS for mainframes at International Computers Limited (ICL) in the UK, each new engineer was assigned to an older engineer who was to be his/her mentor -- I have to say that I learned a HUGE amount from my mrentor -- Dave Potts was his name
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.
