So, I mention two of the networks. Do a search and contact them right away - I think the location changes so you're going to want to know when the next event is. Let me know how you like it--these seem really pretty cool, as it's tough to move in anywhere and feel like you're a part of the crowd. Good luck!
"Favorite" woudl have to be tailored to the company and the reason for going, but loosely I'd have to say Birk's for business and Fibbar McGhees' with friends. Often at TL Beergaden lately, esp when in a divey kind of mood, and because it's really close to my work. The "Colorado Blue" lamb burger there is my all-time favorite burger, anywhere.
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.
