1st language was BASIC on a Radio Shack TRS-80 III, in 1980. Today am programming with C and Assembly for ARM-based devices. Have not personally worked with a hardware design language, but work very closely with people who do.
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.
