Smart Cities and IoE and IIoT - oh my! From Azure IoT to big data analytics to Blockchain - there are a lot of moving parts. Where do you even begin? What are the challenges you will face? What are the opportunities, and for you as a developer, where's the money? It has been noted that in the potential $25B IoT market by 2025, very few of the companies that will lead the charge have even been formed yet. This will be an architectural-level discussion that slants toward development of Smart Cities, looking at what is the Internet of Everything, overviews security and technical challenges, and covers some of the tools and players out there.
