@Crusty: I suspect Private ATM has never come across a character like Crusty?
Not yet -- but if you can persuade your wife that a vacation in Silicon Valley at the end of March / Beginning of April 2014 woudl be a good idea (coincidently, Design West 2014 will be held around that same time) -- then I'd be happy to introduce you -- Adam and Javi (Garcia) are going -- and Duane and Warren -- and possibly Tobia, plus a few other names you'll recognize...
Max! We are famous! Haha, I find it ironic though that such an accomplished author as Max, with many, many successful books in print, still enjoys so immensely being included in Chapter 22 of a 19 (thus far) book series.
But somehow -- I know exactly how he feels! Haha!
Indeed, while it's a surprise to learn your true identity as the CEO of BofA, I'm not surprised that they value your obviously genius level IQ and British witt! :-D
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.
