What is the future of IoT? What does the industry need to invent that hasn't been invented yet? How can we chain systems together and generate business value with them? Better yet, how do we teach people about this more effectively? These are questions I spend my time researching as an academic program manager at PTC. In my position, I work on a team dedicated to creating high-quality, media-rich, educational experiences, and we develop the software needed to make IoT education easy. Today 85% of the world's population according to Forbes, does not know, what the internet of things is. I plan to change that by leveraging my experience developing connectivity software for embedded edge devices and understanding of connectivity inside the context of the internet of things.
