Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the IoT Zone (March 13 - March 20). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. New Relic Serves Up Raspberry Pi Beacons to Celebrate Pi Day

  • We love monitoring things here at New Relic. We use the information that we gather about our applications every day to make them better. So in honor of Pi Day the New Relic .NET team wondered how we could be even more precise this year, given that this year it falls on 3.14.15!

2. Software Architecture Conference Opening Keynote [Live Stream]

  • It's the fourth day of the O'Reilly Software Architecture Conference and O'Reilly is going to stream the opening keynote today and tomorrow (Starts at 8:45am EST each day) via this link...

3. The Sexiest Acronyms These Days: MQTT, IOT and IBM

  • Of course, when you go to Las Vegas, you expect to see ‘sexy’. The glitz and glamour of the Strip was the perfect locale for this enormous and lively conference hosted by IBM and showcasing some of the latest trends in cloud, API, and Internet of Things.

4. Steering a driving Android Phone over the Web via Speech Recognition in IBM Bluemix

  • My colleagues Bryan Boyd and Mark VanderWiele have created a nice demo where you can drive smartphones using Sphero balls. I've modified the sample slightly so that it also works for Android phones. Watch the video to see how to steer a driving smartphone via IBM Bluemix, the Internet of Things and cognitive services from IBM Watson.

5. How the Internet of Things Will Affect Database Management

  • There's no denying the rise of the Internet of Things will challenge existing database systems to adapt to accommodate huge volumes of unstructured data from diverse sources. Some analysts question whether RDBMSs have the scalability, flexibility, and connectivity required to collect, store, and categorize the disparate data types organizations will be dealing with in the future.
