In the coming few years, Internet of Things will be the next big thing. Tremendously increasing in this modern day world, IoT is created from a combination of microsensors and microprocessors. For me IoT is no less than a future technology and to develop a system for the same, one must have necessary IoT skills.
IoT skills (not limited to) needed by a developer are as follows -
A good technical and architecture knowledge opens a wide scope for developers in Internet of Things.
An ideal IoT developer must have a strong understanding of software architecture so as to be the backbone for all big data needs.
One must have proper knowledge of how to render support to the products from the initial concept.
Sensor data analysis and data center management knowledge is another skill that an IoT developer should have.
If you have proper skills of writing codes in various programming languages then it is a perfect add-on.
