Citrix Systems
Today’s post was riginally published on Jade Meskill’s personal blog and is being shared here.  At Octoblu, we deploy very frequently and we’re tired of our users seeing the occasional blip when a new version is put into production.

The Internet of Things, or, the Consumerization of Engineering

I had heard about it, but aside from thinking of everything around me having an IP address, and imaging doing silly things with my refrigerator, I didn’t really know what it meant. Recently we heard that Citrix had acquired OctoBlu, a leader in the IoT space and saw some impressive demos of human/device interaction at Citrix Summit 2015 in Vegas. […]

The FTC is Now Advocating for the Regulation of the Internet of Things… And That’s a Good Thing.
