I’d like to get into the IoT space, and am looking for a good platform to get started on. I’d like to be able to do basic development myself on the app and cloud side (these aren’t my primary areas at all), but picking the right toolchain seems to be an important step.
Initial research took me to AtmosphereIoT.com, which does a lot of the work for you, but after digging in it seems that the there are severe limitations to using their platform for everything.
Azure gets lots of props for security and having a lot of business clients, but their hardware platform also seems limited, and they don’t support cellular connections out of the box.
I typically llike to use platforms that are widely adopted and have lots of momentum behind them, as well as lots of templates or use-cases. I’m definitely more of a hardware / firmware designer, so I’m trying to pick a platform where I won’t have to re-invent the wheel.
Looking forward to hearing your experiences!
