Visualizing Time Series Data with Chart.js and InfluxDB

Time series data is a sequence of data points generated through repeated measurements indexed over time. The data points originate from the same source and track changes at different points in time. Times series data includes data like stock exchange data, monthly inflation data, quarterly gross domestic product (GDP) data, and logs from IoT sensors.


Using SWIG to generate bindings between C and Lua

Lua is one of the many great interpreters that can be run on embedded devices. It’s fast, uses little memory, is written in ANSI C, and is known by plenty of developers. These are a few of the many reasons why the team at Panic chose to include a Lua interpreter on their Playdate device and allow games to be written in it. You can think of Lua as an alternative to the MicroPython (Python) or JerryScript (Javascript) interpreters. However, there’s a problem.


Canonical announces new enterprise-grade Ubuntu images designed for Intel IoT platforms

15 November 2022: Canonical announced today the availability of new enterprise-grade Ubuntu images designed for next-gen Intel IoT platforms. Purpose-built for industrial environments and use cases, the latest Ubuntu images on Intel hardware deliver the performance, safety, and end-to-end security enterprises expect from the most widely used Operating System (OS) among professional developers with latest Intel technologies pre-enabled and available.

The Power of Metrics - Monitoring Battery Life, Connectivity, Power Consumption & More

Once embedded devices are shipped, engineers have limited visibility into their devices. If you want to detect and resolve issues in production quickly, your team needs to implement device metrics. Metrics are a powerful yet simple way to monitor countless IoT devices, leading to quicker issue resolution and better decision-making. In this webinar, Memfault Co-Founder Tyler Hoffman discusses the importance of metrics and how you can use them to build more reliable IoT devices.

Observing AWS Lambda IOT devices

The internet of things is one of my favorite topics. IOT enables low-powered connected devices that opens gateways from the digital to the real world. While I love tinkering away with an Arduino sketch and the latest Espressif or Arduino board, there is always an air of frustration when trying to build out what at first seems like simple functionality using one of these “smart devices” because of the limited view we have into their operations.
