this is good post as this gives an example of how one can convert hobby into serious business and think about improving the coventional devices that we use at home or office daily without thinking too much about their inefficiencies.
The multipage article made sense as several pages since each page focused on a single project (and I appreciate the links to more in-depth pages). One suggestion, though I would add a list of the projects on the first page.
Thanks for your comment. I'm glad you enjoyed the content despite hating the format. (You think that's annoying, try actually making the slideshow. Not fun.) Although this format is rampant on the web right now, we'll try to earn your clicks. Sometimes the slideshow format is a fast way to deliver small, photo-centric content. I'm curious how do you feel aboutmultipage articles such as 6 DIY Hacks for Measurement Tools.
I would have enjoyed reading the article more if I hadn't been constantly reminded how much I hate this format. The title of these articles ought to be "Here's Tidbit So You Can Click on a Dozen More Pages!" I can go to Gutenberg and have all 458 pages of Robinson Crusoe on one page so document size isn't an issue, the only purpose of this format seems to be to sell ad space. I understand ads pay the bills, but this is too much.
@Susan: "Looks like they'll have some interesting stories to tell."
I'm really eager to attend as many classes as possible from this group of embedded engineers and etrepreneurs at EELive!
After reading this slideshow, I'm specially interested in attending to Libelium's CTO David Gascon class. About ten years ago, we were studying at the Polytechnic Center of Zaragoza (Spain). Funny enough, we didn't met at class, but in some techno music parties ;-) Now, we will met again as speakers at EELive! -- a real world-class techno event!!!
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.
