Containers have gotten a lot of press for easing friction in the enterprise world of cloud tech. They are also poised to make developing IOT technology as easy as pushing your code to github. The hardware start-up space may no longer be limited to those with an Electrical Engineering degree.
This year, a “singularity” in the world of IoT applications development is set to occur as startups like resin.io, who have recently introduced a system for deploying Docker containers to connected devices, proliferate. What is the singularity? It’s simple: Web developers will become IoT developers. The result of this change will be an explosion of new applications as developers skilled in Ruby, Go, Python and Node.js realize they are now capable of launching Internet of Things products without a degree in electrical engineering.
