Qualcomm® Developer Network Developer of the Month Joseph Chiu has created two excellent Hackster.io projects to help you connect hardware to the cloud. Joseph’s projects include creating a smart speaker using the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 212 processor on an APQ8009 board, as well as a guide to connecting the Snapdragon 212 processor to Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform.
It’s a great time to learn something new. Technologies including the cloud, IoT, machine learning and virtual reality are reshaping entire industries and opening doors to innovations almost unimaginable a decade ago. Some of this is through new technology, and some represents existing technology used in new ways -- an example we recently discussed with the ever-increasing convergence of hardware and software.
Ever since high school, I’ve had a wild fashion dream: to design a robot dress. Not just any robot dress, mind you, but an elegant gown that can do things like hug people and move with me as I wear it. Never did I imagine that by revealing this fantasy during an interview, I’d have the opportunity to inspire so many people.

Hardware-software convergence, or how hardware and software systems are working more closely together, illustrates how each are empowering (and sometimes literally powering) the other. And in our current development environment, this is happening more than ever. Of course, deep technical skills will be of the utmost importance to navigate this technological trend, but it is also the soft skills we apply to our engineering practices that are as important in determining our success.
