Download Red Hat’s blueprint for building an open IoT platform—open source from cloud to gateways to devices.

Next month my colleagues and I from the IBM Emerging Technologies team will host an IBM Bluemix Internet of Things hackathon at Devoxx in London. As part of this effort we're open sourcing some of our IoT demos. Today we (thx to Mike Robertson and Bryan Boyd) open sourced an iOS app that communicates to Sphero balls via bluetooth and to Bluemix via MQTT. It's essentially the counterpart to the Android app I published last week.
