@Maxthemagnificent Thanks for hosting the chat this week - it's nice to know that people do these things not because their manager makes them, but because they care about the community and facilitate a great exchange. I learned about a lot of free tools I didn't know existed and I am sure others would say the same! Thanks again, and looking forward to next week's chat already. :-)
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.
