IoT Developer Ecosystem Insight: Why Developers in Asia-Pacific and Western Europe Outnumber Those in North America

by Ryan Harbison | 4Q 2016 | IN-4329

The IoT developer ecosystem has continued to expand as more organizations have begun to seek opportunities and efficiencies from connected products and services. Building a connected product is a difficult task due to the myriad of technical disciplines required to create an end-to-end solution, from electrical and mechanical engineering to computer science and product design. There has been no shortage though of advanced development kits, software platforms, and other technical tools that have lowered the barriers to entry. At the end of October 2016, Microchip Technology launched the first Federal Communications Commission-certified radio frequency transceiver and IoT developer kit, while Silicon Labs introduced a complete sensor-to-cloud development kit providing the hardware and software developers need to create IoT sensors. These join older development kits such as Intel’s Galileo and relayr’s WunderBar that have significantly enabled the Internet of Things.
