Internet of Things: A Developer's Mandate

The Internet of Things (IoT) is not only a reality but it will impact every home and business on the planet in the next 15 years. The concept of IoT is simple: connect all the things to the Internet so that automation and decision processes are streamlined. Experts believe the possibilities yielded by IoT are bounded only by our imaginations.

As the first whitepaper of the Application Developers Alliance Internet of Things series, Internet of Things: A Developer's Mandate:

  • Investigates the current state of the Internet of things
  • Explore the opportunities arising for developers
  • Analyze the quantity and quality of support for developers in this space
  • Uncover best practices of which developers should have an immediate working knowledge

This introduction is the beginning of a series of papers designed to help developers understand the many facets of the Internet of Things that are connecting to the Internet.
