Ruff Diamonds

With planet earth’s connected devices already outnumbering people by three to two, a future shaped by the Internet of Things is surely no longer in question. The precise form networks will take and the tools for their development are constantly shifting, of course, and this week in Beijing we caught a glimpse of ideas that promise to turbo-charge IoT progress.

Ruff is an IoT development platform that significantly simplifies the coding process. Working in JavaScript, Ruff smooths the path to embedded coding and opens the door for straightforward Java code to run on a range of devices. The sleek and effective process has attracted a large, talented developer community, and they can take advantage of a growing arsenal of tools. The devices you’d expect to see most frequently used in IoT hardware are ably supported, and everything is geared towards faster, more effective coding. 

This week saw Ruff attracting not only developers but accolades. Tech Crunch Beijing, held this year at the city’s Institute of Fashion Technology, is a fiercely competitive showcase that offers us a preview of the tech stars of the very near future. In the event’s prestigious startup competition, Ruff has emerged as the winner. 


When every other leap seems to be a quantum leap, where can innovators like Ruff take us? 


In maximising the potential of the IoT we can bring together people, processes and data to create more intelligent, nuanced interactions. We can seize this opportunity not only to connect things to other things, but to fold human intelligence into the chain. We can make the Internet of Things the Internet of Life. And the more Ruff diamonds we uncover to help us along the way, the better.

    I think you are correct that people involvement in the process is important. Internet of Things must become Internet of Things including Living Things.

    You really make it appear really easy with your presentation however I find this topic to be really one thing that I feel I might never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely large for me. I'm taking a look forward for your subsequent post, I will attempt to get the cling of it!

    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?
