150-WORD BOOK REVIEW: Designing The Internet Of Things

designing_the_internet_of_thingsWhen I agreed to review this book by Adrian McEwen and Hakim Cassimally, I thought I would be reading an everyman book about how our world is being changed by the collision between physical computing and the internet.

I was wrong, this book is for software engineers, web developers, product designers and electronic engineers; I couldn’t understand a word of it… and I CAN code. This book covers subjects such as embedded programming, microcontrollers, web APIs and electronics and if this is you, then I’m sure you’ll revere it.

According to friends of mine who work in the disciplines above, this is an excellent introduction to read through the principles of prototyping through to manufacture and business considerations. So, I’ll take their world for it that this is an excellent book.
