Welcome to Issue 99 of IoT Weekly News!
I appreciate you subscribing and keeping up to date on the Internet of Things through this newsletter. I can't believe I am on the cusp of publishing the 100th issue of IoT Weekly News! As in previous weeks, this issue is jam packed with articles covering the full range of technologies that cover the IoT.
I cover a number of articles from the Mobile World Congress (MWC) which happened recently. Security continues to be a subject of discussion with WikiLeaks making news on disclosing information about the CIA. I cover an IoT platform company raising a Series B, stories on consumers and the IoT and round out the issue with a few neat crowdfunding campaigns.
Finally, if you are looking for a position with a company leading the way in connected filtration and contamination, take a look at our employment sponsor, Donaldson. They have a Senior Engineer position open!
I hope you enjoy this issue and please let me know if you are interested in sponsoring a future issue!
