Why it is worth spreading the word about IoT?
Aloha! Chances are that you did not miss me at all, but I am back from long time being absent and this drives me freaking happy. As much passion as I have had for the IoT when I started this blog, the merrier I gravitated around cloud architectures for the past year or so.
Getting into the fascinating world revolving around the Internet of Things paradigm, requires some initial preparation in terms of knowledge. After that, you have to constantly top your think-tank with more and more of it. Here is what I consider useful in regards to the never ending activity of learning.
Couple of months ago, your favorite Internet of Things website, err.. IoTMonkey, was born. The initial idea for this website was to be a travel blog covering my endeavor in the world of internet of things. It became a place where I am not only logging my journey around IoT events, but try to spread knowledge.
Interesting consequence of events around Google Glass in the past couple of months is pointing that this much-hyped, mega-feature-rich, ultra-futuristic device is not going to regular audience anytime soon. And when I say “regular audience” I mean that we will probably never see hundreds and thousands of people wearing Glass in their everyday life.
It has been a while, please beg my absence. Some unforeseen circumstances were preventing me from my usual operations. But now I’m back. And I am on a winning streak!
Networking is all – as I have already said bajillion of times already, and in the spirit of that – I would like to invite you to How.Camp. It is one of the biggest summits of the Bulgarian IT society, organized by Bogomil ‘Bogo’ Shopov, true pioneer in the world of open source and prominent pirate.
It has been a month since I have launched the IoT Monkey blog. It was a crazy month – I have travelled around Europe, attended couple of different events related to the Internet of Things and I have even enrolled myself into the #IOT360 blog contest.
I am digging deeply in the Internet of Things for the past year or so. I can easily call myself a professional with a lot of expertise in the field of technology, talk for hours about sensors, actuators, wires and stuff. But I will not.
As I have been stretching my fingers to polish my #iot360 blog contest essay, I decided to take a little break and share some of my thoughts regarding the last event I have attended. If you have followed, you know that I talk for #IoTSC2014.
The last technical day at the IoTSC2014 was covering topics in the CONSUME area or either said – collecting and parsing sensor data. It was a very exciting day, also including a socially oriented event for dinner.
