Sensors to Cloud - A Guide to the Internet of Things
Sensors to Cloud - A Guide to the Internet of Things
Connect, Collect, Compute and Consume IoT Data
About the Book
Most IoT books are myopically focussed on the “thing” like Raspberry Pi and not the entire stack. The value is not in the “thing” but the data that is collected from the field. The value is when the right data is collected, reliably stored, and knowledge computed to arrive at actionable outcomes. This book is written to equip Developers and Data scientists with all the necessary skills/tools on Edge to Cloud Data management and Analytics. The concepts will help lay the foundations, followed with deep dives on architecture and hand-on coding. Along the way a vast trove of learning materials will be shared to help go beyond whats covered here.
In the Capstone project we will simulate a smart IoT power grid which gathers power shortfall and takes decisions in real time to switch on the right Power plants to generate additional power in the most efficient fashion.
What you will learn:
- How data flows from IoT device to the cloud, along with variety of OT and IT protocols used
- Variety of IoT Field Gateway architectures and software. Example: Node-red, Kura etc
- Variety of IoT Cloud Gateway architectures and software. Example: Apache Kafka, RabbitMQ etc
- Tools for storing massive amounts of IoT data in the cloud. Example: Apache Cassandra, MongoDB etc
- Statistical techniques for analytics. Example: Anomaly detection using Statistics
- Machine learning techniques for analytics. Example: Linear Regression, Clustering and Classification
- Deep learning techniques for analytics. Example: Neural Networks
- Variety of tools to run these analytics in the cloud. Example: Apache Spark etc
- Tools to storing data on the edge. Example: SQLite
- Tools and Techniques to perform Edge Analytics.

Software Design in Functional Programming, Design Patterns and Practices, Methodologies and Application Architectures. How to build real software in Haskell with less efforts and low risks. The first complete source of knowledge.
C++20 is the next big C++ standard after C++11. As C++11 did it, C++20 changes the way we program modern C++. This change is, in particular, due to the big four of C++20: ranges, coroutines, concepts, and modules.
The book is almost daily updated. These incremental updates ease my interaction with the proofreaders.
