Kii Expert This Week
Chris Beauchamp, Developer Evangelist, Kii
This week we sit down with our own developer evangelist, a long-time app developer and IoT expert, who talks about Kii's upcoming webinar.
Q: Where does one get started on an IoT project?
A: Well it all starts out with the hardware. You need a device that’s capable and does, well, something interesting! If you’re just getting started or developing a proof-of concept, Raspberry Pis and Arduinos are great hacker tools. From there it’s all about connectivity, with the cloud and other devices to build out a full solution. Building interesting hardware is tough enough, so services like Kii really help get the connectivity side up and running in a short amount of time so you can focus on the device itself.
Q: What are some key take-a-ways from the webinar that you think will be of interest to people?
A: I think understanding how easy it can be to set up a full IoT solution will be surprising to many developers, especially those on the hardware side. While you’re building and testing the device itself, you generally will put off the connectivity and cloud until the end. This makes the cloud look like a big daunting task on the horizon, but by leveraging the right tools you can knock it out in a fraction of the time and get to market much faster.
