Digi-Key Electronics’ Internet of Things (IoT) Resource Center Inspires the Future: Read More

Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the IoT Zone (October 24 - October 31). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. How the Internet of Things Will Impact Your Employment

  • It's pretty clear: IoT is the future. If you're working in IoT or plan to be soon, it sounds like you won't have any trouble find a job - and getting paid, for that matter - but what does this future of employment look like for everybody else?

2. The Visualization of Things: Real-Time 3D Representations of IoT Connections

  • What's interesting about the Internet of Things is not really the Things, of course - they're just a bunch of junk you can buy - so much as the connections between them. As a result, it can be a bit hard to visualize - what, among the things that surround you, is actually connected?

3. .NET Rocks Podcast: The Security of IoT

  • You know how you always wanted a fork with an ARM processor that could upload data wirelessly over the internet? C’mon, you know you want it and now you can get a HAPIfork.

4. Putting Code of Files into Special Section with the GNU Linker

  • The GNU Linker (ld) is very powerful. This time I wanted to put all my Processor Expert generated code into its own dedicated section. This is useful for example to have a bootloader or a library inside a special area in FLASH. It was not obvious how to do this with the linker, but with some trial and error, I finally managed it.

5. How Machine-Learning-as-a-Service Can Help the Internet of Things Reach its Potential

  • Without machine learning, the Internet of Things would likely be dead in the water. And now that small businesses can take advantage of machine learning due to MLaaS, more innovations and creative enterprises will likely result.
