Remembered your ukelele construction a while back. Just wanted to pass on an artist I was privileged to see last night - Jake Shimabukuro. Small venue - we were in the sixth row! Turns out his manager lives nearby in Lancaster, PA. (Yes - the Amish country, and where York is about 30 miles from Lancaster!) If you ever get a chance to hear him, it's worth your time. Songs from Bohemian Rhapsody to an achingly beautiful rendition of the Ave Maria. And, of course "While my guitar gently weeps". Or start at http://jakeshimabukuro.com/
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.
