This marks the first in a series of postings on the Internet of Things (IoT). Come with me as I learn more about these emerging technologies which promise to revolutionize everything we do.
First, the obligatory introduction for those of you who have been living in a cave…
IoT is the use of web/network based everyday appliances and other, well, things. IoT represents vending machines that keep their own inventory, toasters that alert you when the toast is done, fire alarms that wake you while calling the fire fighters, and so much more.
IoT presents a significant opportunity for developers; a technology space that is growing rapidly, and in many directions at once. While the market may not yet support a substantial investment, this is a sector you want to track closely.
