We at Software Design Solutions believe that the so-called “Internet of Things” has only just begun to warp the fabric of our society. We’re not necessarily talking about consumer goods such as wearables and home automation devices, though the way the Internet of Things is altering our homes and daily lives is profound. We’re talking about business and industry. We’re talking about the increased efficiency in virtually every industrial and commercial process.
Embedded systems development is an exciting field that has become, in a few short decades, a cornerstone of the way we interact with technology. Unfortunately, our education system is not training new engineers who are effective in it. This is a major problem for our industry.
The Raspberry Pi, which began as a DIY hobbyist platform, is shaking up the Internet of Things. If you have heard of the Raspberry Pi, you already know that it is basically a tiny, incredibly cheap personal computer that skilled developers can use to handle a number of tasks in an economic fashion. This technology has proven to be incredibly useful for IoT developers in particular. You can expect to see a variety of Raspberry Pi uses as more developers begin experimenting with this innovative piece of equipment.
