I had two programmers working on a problem together and my boss pulled me to the side and asked why I had cut their productivity in half. She thought they should have been working on individual projects. I countered with, who's going to cut down more trees? Two guys with single handled saws or two guys using a double handled saw? They are pushing and pulling each other to a solution and cross training to boot. She still wasn't happy.
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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
