Welcome IoT Weekly News Readers to Issue number 100!
I'm thrilled to have had the opportunity to cover the Internet of Things for the past 100 issues and am looking forward to the next 100. For more than two and a half years, I've been dedicated to pouring over articles in search of finding those that are the most relevant and reading the tea leaves on what will be the next hot topic with the connected devices. I've seen trends come and go, but one thing that has stayed constant was growth and innovation. This issue is no different. We've got a little from a number of players across many verticals and a fun Kickstarter at the end!
Also, in case you missed it last week, we are featuring a great employment opportunity for a Project Manager – Internet of Things (IoT) Innovation at Donaldson.
I hope you enjoy this issue and look forward to bringing you curated content on the power of smart, connected devices for many years to come!
