How to Be an Internet of Things (IoT) Developer in the Modern Age

Graphic representation of world covered with Internet of Things (Iot) connections

The pro­lif­er­a­tion of con­nected de­vices over the past sev­eral years has been as­ton­ish­ing. From every­day items like wear­ables and ther­mostats to more am­bi­tious de­vices like so­lar pan­els and street lights, it seems as if there are few things that are not con­nected in some way. As we look to­ward the fu­ture to fully con­nected cities, hos­pi­tals, and homes, the role of the IoT de­vel­oper is be­com­ing ever more cru­cial.

Software de­vel­op­ment is of grow­ing im­por­tance in all kinds of in­dus­tries, but ar­guably none is more im­por­tant than de­vel­op­ing for and with con­nected de­vices. If your Fitbit glitches, that is one story, but it is an en­tirely dif­fer­ent one if a con­nected med­ical de­vice fails in the mid­dle of surgery or a self-dri­ving car goes hay­wire in the mid­dle of rush hour. Because of the crit­i­cal role that IoT de­vices are play­ing in our lives, poorly de­vel­oped IoT de­vices can be life threat­en­ing, mak­ing this type of de­vel­op­ment par­tic­u­larly unique.

Mobile Field Service Apps Webinar Recordings Up!

The en­ter­prise is go­ing mo­bile more and more. The dif­fer­ence is in how quick and trou­ble-free the tran­si­tion can be fore your par­tic­u­lar busi­ness.

Verivo and Exadel have been part­ner­ing to­gether to make seam­less en­ter­prise mo­bil­ity hap­pen for a va­ri­ety of en­ter­prise cus­tomers. Now we feel it’s time to share our ex­pe­ri­ences. We wanted to present a we­bi­nar to­gether to help oth­ers see the ben­e­fits of en­ter­prise mo­bil­ity along with some lessons learned along the way, but we also wanted to make the in­for­ma­tion more di­gestible. So, we de­cided to break up the ma­te­rial into three brief 30-min­ute we­bi­nars.  The se­ries starts off April 1, then con­tin­ues on April 7 and April 14, all at 11am Pacific time. Here’s our line-up so far:

Vinnytsia, in the west­ern part of Ukraine

In mid-July, Exadel opened a new of­fice in the west Ukrainian town of Vinnytsia, close to the Rumanian bor­der. On September 13, we held an open house, “Exadel. Look Inside,”  for lo­cal de­vel­op­ers to come and see what kind of op­por­tu­ni­ties we have for them. It was quite suc­cess­ful.

Updated: Changed to re­flect 2d we­bi­nar on SQL to REST.

In a pre­vi­ous post, we dis­cussed our se­ries of up­com­ing we­bi­nars on RESTXpress. The first one, An Overview of RESTXpress, went quite well (record­ing). For the oth­ers, we had to read­just our orig­i­nal sched­ule. The next we­bi­nar will be:

Abbacadabra: SQL Database Queries into REST Services!

Got 20 Minutes? Join Us for a RESTXpress Webinar Overview Tomorrow

RESTXpressLogo

To bet­ter ed­u­cate and sup­port our com­mu­nity of in­ter­est around RESTXpress, we’re go­ing to try some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent for we­bi­nars. Instead of go­ing for a whole hour, we’ll have more we­bi­nars, but re­duce them to 20 (30 at the most) min­utes each. This should al­low at least 15 min­utes for the demo and 5 min­utes for Q & A. The first one will of course be a quick overview of the most cur­rent ver­sion:

RESTXpress Moves Forward into Commercial Availability — Webinar Coming Up

We came up with RESTXpress based on a sim­ple idea: Don’t rein­vent the wheel.

Although there isn’t quite as much buzz about it any­more, the grow­ing API econ­omy is real. Businesses need to be able to se­curely ex­pose more of their ex­ist­ing data and op­er­a­tions as REST ser­vices; how­ever, re­sources and time to do so are al­ways scarce.

And, you al­ready have the func­tion­al­ity. You don’t want to re­build it from scratch as a REST ser­vice.
