The November 2015 digital issue of BZ Media’s SD Times is now available for your reading pleasure. Our cover story this month looks at the developing, “nettlesome” Internet of Things. Services and APIs are built out to connect just about everything to just about everything else, which senior editor Alex Handy calls “a nebulous blob of a million SDKs all layered on top of one another and manifesting in droplets of code everywhere.” It’s an informative look at emerging standards efforts, even more data to manage, and how frontline systems administrators are dealing with it all.
