IoT Development and Testing Part 2: Dev-Ops-Testing Introduction

About the Book

Each eBook in this series starts with an introduction to the environment of Internet of Things (IoT). Some people also refer to this as the internet of everything, but we will stick with IoT. 

Why the internet of things? 

Well in IoT the basic idea is to take every day physical objects, devices, systems, and systems of systems and connect them with software as well as communications to the internet.  The obvious starting point has been existing electronic devices since these object already had power, which is necessary to support computers and communication.  However, many people have realized that other physical devices can have power and a computer added offering “new” smart devices.
