What does it take to be an IoT engineer? in IoT Engineering Posted July 7, 2016 On 5 July 2016 at 4:23 PM, Andrew at MEA said: “IoT is like teenage sex: Everyone talks about it, nobody really knows how to do it. Everyone thinks everyone else is doing it, so everyone claims they are doing it too.” Gold!!! In all seriousness, it's true - most people really don't know or understand what IoT is meant to be. They thing its about inserting a sensor into the Internet, and then seeing what happens.
