I hate the typical news site design that has a single narrow column for the actual content, a massive header at the top that forces scrolling on every page load, and dozens of tiny pages to be loaded for each article.
This drinking robots article is a perfect example. I can't get to the next robot without scrolling down and then clicking the next link. And this is on a 27" Thunderbolt Display with 2560 x 1440 pixels. What a waste.
Just put all the robots on a single page. I don't mind scrolling for more content. I hate scrolling just to get to the start of the content, or to get to the controls that lead to more content.
Ah. Now I thought this was going to be about Liquor Inventory control, like http://www.liquormonitor.com/ or Bar Vision. There are some cool technologies afoot for making sure bartenders don't give extra booze to, you know, their friends.
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.
