IoT and DevOps... what?

If you're anything like Lee and Eddie, terms like IoT and DevOps are a little... mystical to you. What do those terms even mean?

IoT or Internet of Things, might not mean anything to you at all, and DevOps may evoke terms like Travis, CircleCI, AWS, etc.

This week we talk to Jared Porcenaluk about both IoT and DevOps and really try to nail down the definition, importance and technologies involved in both. We also talk electric cars and Adam Sandler.

About Jared

Jared Porcenaluk is a Senior Software Developer at Archer First Response Systems, a startup seeking to save lives by delivering AEDs to cardiac arrest victims by way of drones. As a director of Orlando IoT along with Garrett Curtis and Al Rodriguez, Jared seeks to help inspire, educate, and connect people who connect things. They have a monthly meetup, you should totally check it out by Googling "Orlando Internet of Things Meetup." Currently, he's grappling with a lot of new-to-him technologies like Node.js and Kubernetes, learning a few new aviation vocabulary terms, and wrangling six-rotor small unmanned aerial systems.
