Jim Kato

DIY Vegetable factory evangelist and IoT developer

I am a founder and a professional consultant at Bitjoule in the field of traditional areas to deploy IoT technologies to explore greater productivity. I also love to build something for fun since I was a child.

I have experiences in the IT areas for nearly 20 years as an engineer (software & hardware developer of embedded systems, solution architect, trainer, etc.). 

My family has traditionally been farmers in Northeastern Japan for a few centuries, where the society is aging and sustainability is in great question. Young people go out to cities for white-color jobs. I believe that traditional industries, which are still crucial for our survival, can revive by modernizing their principles and methodologies so that people become more interested to work in those areas.
