The demand for smart, connected products continues to grow, and this is a huge opportunity for Java developers. Estimates are there will be 20 to 50 billion connected devices by 2020, generating US$14.4 trillion in value. However, the IoT value chain is highly fragmented and complex, especially when it involves edge devices. Machine-to-machine development can be complex, and current options are closed and monolithic. We need new value business models and seamless device-to-data-center platforms to truly enable the "Internet of Things". Java enables an open, standards-based platform to deploy highly integrated, end-to-end, device-to-data-center solutions. If you are in the Richmond area, come learn how Java and IoT go together.
