Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the IoT Zone (February 20 - February 27). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Code Golf: Fibonacci's Sequence Part Deux

  • In order to showcase the brightest members of our community, DZone presents our weekly Code Golf competition. Think you have what it takes to complete the challenge in the fewest characters? This week's challenge - displaying Fibonacci's Sequence without using any numbers in your code - without using ANY NUMBERS!

2. Raspberry Pi Automation, Docker, and Other Inanities

  • It was recently discovered in the office that I’ve been using Raspberry Pis to automate my life and generally mundane stuff around the house, so I decided to share my projects. I would love to hear what you guys are doing too.

3. IoT is Missing the "O"

  • Over the last two years, in pushing IoT to the peak of the hype, we have kept, and blown up, the sensor, data, and cloud – the IT mindset, but dropped the control, process, and coordination – the OT mindset. In the technology innovation landscape today, pockets of OT-minded activities happen in consumer electronics and homes, or among hobbyists, but far less in business and industries than it is deserved... IoT needs new technologies to bring the capabilities of IT and OT together, and take them to many more sectors than just the OT-dominated industries.

4. Testing the Internet of Things

  • The mobile revolution flipped testing on its side. Suddenly teams and testers had to think about connectivity in new ways, power sources, the impact of touch technology, system interruptions, bandwidth, and dropped connections — which was barely on the radar screen before. Testing is on the cusp of a new revolution; this time, it is the internet of things, or IoT.

5. Controlling a LED with a Raspberry PI 2 using Mono and C#

  • My fellow MVP Peter Nowak from Germany pointed me to this awesome kit on Amazon.de that has this a vast array of sensors in it. It comes with 37 sensors and peripherals that can be controlled with a Raspberry PI2. It’s originally made for the PI B+, but as this is pin compatible with the PI 2 this works fine.
