I remember the days where the promise of “a computer in every home” seemed revolutionary. Now, we’re surrounded by a multitude of small, connected computing devices. From smart watches on our wrists to smart lighting in our streets, the Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming our homes, cities and workplaces, making our lives easier, safer and more productive.
While there’s justified excitement about the potential for IoT, our journey has just begun. There are significant opportunities ahead for developers, but how do you get started?
In November 2016, at AWS re:Invent, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. was one of the first companies to demonstrate AWS Greengrass support by working with Solstice to feature a live demonstration of AWS Greengrass running on the DragonBoard™ 410c development board by Arrow Electronics in a facilities management use case.
Qualcomm® Developer Network June Developer of the Month is Keith Lee.
Keith spends his time dreaming up new uses for hardware, as ‘Gadget Guru’ with his company Gumstix. Gumstix make products to extend all kinds of Computer-on-Modules (COMs), including the DragonBoard™ 410c available from Arrow Electronics. Keith’s enthusiasm for hardware in embedded and IoT is infectious, and his work also spans back-end and firmware development.
The world has traditionally categorized people into two camps: left-brained and right-brained - logical versus creative. Even if that theory has long since been debunked, there's a presumption that has annoyingly stuck around. That developers, engineers, and STEM types are not creative thinkers - when, in fact, the opposite is true.
