Browsing the source code, my mind fills with reminiscences of implementations of CORBA, IrDA stacks and, perhaps, Jini. Although functional, we all know how well those fared when users tried to deploy the technology and faced frequent usage. Personally, I would have expected and preferred a carefully tailored KISS framework instead, maybe something similar to ZeroMQ's flexible "smart sockets" concept in place of a full blown client-service scheme. Hopefully the development of AllJoyn will evolve in the right direction under the Linux Foundation.
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
