Meeting Usman Haque: a shared vision for the IoT

We had our second successful Boston/New England IoT Meetup last night, with some great speakers (more about them later). Thanks to my co-organizer, Chris Rezendes of INEX Advisors, for putting together a great program!

Wahoo! Liveblogging #Liveworx ’18!

Always my fav event, I’ll be liveblogging #LiveWorx ’18.  Stay tuned!
Keynote: Jim Heppelmann:

“from a place to a pace” — how fast are we moving?
