Abstract: Software developers can be divided into two groups: those who think that their manager sucks, and those who believe that managers are not needed at all. Managers can be divided into two groups too: those who think that they know how to write software and those who know how to deliver the product. In this talk we’ll discuss all points of views to put your mind at ease and come up with a definition of a good manager and a good employee.

Abstract: From the software development perspective Internet of Things (IoT) is about programming sensors, connecting them with each other and integrating them with existing business applications.

This presentation will demonstrate a sample architecture of such an application.
