I hope to be able to share more details very soon, but I wanted to share what I can in the meantime with the developer community about how we are using NATS in our IoT messaging initiatives and would be very interested in any feedback, suggestions or questions! Our platform is based on an IoT network of distributed sensors. Read More…


Event Enabling the Internet of Things using AWS Lambda, NATS and Apcera
