We love the marriage of firmware and hardware. It offers the lowest level and a clean slate to create amazingly cost effective, high value products. Today’s micro-controllers are ridiculous beasts of power and have also become a commodity. The cell phone, automotive, and computer industry’s advances eventually trickle down to the embedded world. Much like PCB layout, embedded programming is still an art and it requires a programmer to understand architecture. This is because with all its power, it is also easy to shoot yourself in the foot and end up with a mess. Anyone can paint a picture, but as a business we want to sell this work of art to a customer.
The programming tools and languages of IoT are always growing...
- RESTful APIs for event based and cloud interfaces - IFTTT
- Squirrel Language for Electric IMP
- SQL database interfaces Oracle, DBA, SQL Lite, Access, AWS, Azure
- I'm definitely forgetting lots of languages. I can hardly keep up!!! and you don't have to, because we are a clan of engineering nerds at DE Design Works - we dream about Squirrel at night ...so you can dream about other things and you don't have to even know what the heck Squirrel programming is - Just call us and we can get it done.
