I know that in the past companies that used asynchronous logic tried to hide that fact - because of unproven technology,tools,etc - even if it worked great.
Now they overuse the word "asynchronous" as a buzzword - as if it'd give some advantage.
I think it's misleading. First, there are several very different approaches to design asynchronous logic. Second, it's likely that the design has some synchronous logic, so it's not entirely asynchronous.
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.
