We've used AWS IoT Core so many times on an embedded Linux device, we created an open source service to reduce implementation effort . Dubbed chariotd and written in NodeJS, its a very useful and a lean implementation that provides access to key AWS IoT Core features - Device Shadow handling, MQTT message publishing and Fleet Provisioning.
Internet of things (IoT)
We often get brought on board to help productise 'IoT' (that's Internet of Things, if you have somehow managed to escape the acronym) devices, and depending on the domain it's often a Linux based device. Something we commonly see is that developers who are entering the embedded Linux space from the server or desktop direction are carrying over patterns from there out of habit.
If popular media is to be believed, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is everywhere and it’s either going to solve all our problems or robots are going to take over the world and we’re going to lose our jobs. AI is the new oil, or the new electricity.
