3 Reasons FLOSS Developers Should Attend Devoxx US, Eclipse Converge and Eclipse IoT Day

We are just a month away from Devoxx US and Eclipse Converge, and I’m really excited about what is coming up. Like I often say, there are only so many conferences that one can attend, so it is always hard to figure out which ones are really worthwhile. Although I am certainly a bit biased, since I...

Why is IoT Popular? Because of Open Source, Big Data, Security and SDN

If you think the IoT is a new thing, think again. The term Internet of Things has been around since the late 1990s. Devices other than computers and phones have been connecting to the Internet for decades. Neither the concept nor the substance of the IoT is very novel. Yet it has been only in the...

Scripting IoT
At the upcoming Embedded Linux Conference + OpenIoT Summit, Paul Sokolovsky will discuss some of the challenges of using scripting languages in embedded development.

Using Scripting Languages in IoT: Challenges and Approaches

Scripting languages (aka Very High-Level Languages or VHLLs), such as Python, PHP, and JavaScript are commonly used in desktop, server, and web development. And, their powerful built-in functionality lets you develop small useful applications with little time and effort, says Paul Sokolovsky, IoT...

IoT security
At ELC + OpenIot Summit, Adam Englander will discuss some practical steps developers can take to make their devices less vulnerable to attackers.

Practical Steps for Protecting IoT Devices

The security of IoT devices is a high priority these days, as attackers can use Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks to target them and wreak havoc on a system. “Due to the sheer volume of unconnected devices, it can take hours and often days to mitigate such an attack,” says Adam...

Click Here to Kill Everyone: Security and the Internet of Things

All computers are hackable. This has as much to do with the computer market as it does with the technologies. We prefer our software full of features and inexpensive, at the expense of security and reliability. That your computer can affect the security of Twitter is a market failure. The industry...
