IoT on the edge, Part 2: Integrating edge analytics into your IoT solutions
In the first article in this series, you learned how to monitor hay barns for humidity and temperature to identify dangerous conditions. However, identification is only a partial solution. Ideally, we would want to fix those conditions automatically. Because Internet access might be slow, spotty, or even non-existent, the analytics to decide what to do should happen on the “edge” of the network, right at the barn.

Rapidly develop Internet of Things apps with Docker Containers
The rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) has been driven in part by the commoditization and accessibility of wireless modules, sensors, and microcontrollers. But the IoT isn't just big news for device manufacturers. As the number and variety of connected devices increases, the demand for applications to interface with those devices and to process the vast quantities of data that they produce is also increasing. To match this growing demand, web and mobile application developers will need to start to develop for the IoT and adapt their current development practices to meet the challenges of this new application area. One such development practice is the use of containers. Containers are a lightweight approach to virtualization that developers can apply to rapidly develop, test, deploy, and update IoT applications at scale.

And, given the nature of always-connected devices, you must also consider power consumption, chip speed, memory, and firmware updates. All of these critical factors determine whether your IoT product might be successful or not. This article examines good mobile development patterns and how you can apply them to IoT development to help make your IoT "thing" more likely to succeed.
