The people's republic of Kalifornia has become so hostile to business that Silicon Valley will be moving to friendlier places. Austin, TX, Cary, NC, or Lawrenceville, GA will benefit to the Bay Area's detrement.
It's all about Education, Motivation, Opportunity and Great Ideas. Does Silicon Valley have folks with DNA that embrace these...heck yes. Does Silicon Valley have the framework to let them scale-up their companies/employment in the Valley...TBD.
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.
