Max, the solution is to surf the wave of conformity. Once critical mass is achieved (50% +1?), the rest of the crowd will feel out of place and in lunch time, they will rush out to the nearest Hawaiian shirt store!
@Betajet: Mine is black with big yellow flowers. Very elegant. I'm glad to have a good opportunity to show it off :-)
I'm looking forward to seeing it. I will be wearing Hawaiian shirts throughout the conference (I wear them every day) -- and I would love to see other people wearing them throughout the conference -- but for those who have only one Hawaiian shirt (say a black one with big yellow flowers), perhaps the best time to flaunt it would be at the conference party on Tuesday afternoon (4:00pm to 5:00pm, I think).
Maybe we can have an unofficial competition to decide who is sporting the most bodacious Hawaiian shirt?
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.
