Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the IoT Zone (September 5 to 11). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Developing with a Sense of Direction: Hackstock for #LocalGov

It's a familiar trend when it comes to hackathons - to startup-centric software development in general, maybe - that the app comes first, and the reason comes second. Hackstock for #LocalGov, on the other hand, is an interesting twist on this tradition.

2. One More Thing... Apple Announced the Apple Watch

The iPhone 6 wasn't the only thing to come from the Apple Event - also, the Apple Watch. Here's what we know so far.

3. Get Smart Things Talking with AllJoyn and Kii

Here's a guide to get started with AllJoyn using JavaScript binding (in Node.js) to allow peers to exchange messages. You’ll also learn how to cloud-enable the project by logging received messages on Kii for later processing. In this tutorial we’ll send text, but Kii can also send richer data such as music, photo, and video.

4. LED Clock with Kitchen Hot Pan Protector

When I showed my 60 NeoPixel LED clock prototype to my daughter and her girlfriend, and they both wanted to have one right away :-). Well, that clock was just a proof of concept, with lots of temporary wiring. So I decided this week-end to beautify it and to make it look nice and clean(er).

5. USB with the TWR-KL25Z48M Board: Check Jumper J18!

When I ordered my first Freedom FRDM-KL25Z board, I placed an order the Tower TWR-KL25Z48M shortly afterwards. The good news is that at least for the USB applications, my USB demo projects on GitHub for FRDM-KL25Z work 1-to-1 with the Tower board too.
