The Mobile Web 2.0 spotlight is a collection of the best services/products in relation to Mobile Web 2.0

Welcome to the SYS-CON Mobile Web 2.0 Spotlight

Coinciding with the launch of my book Mobile Web 2.0, I am happy to announce that, in addition to my blog, I will also be regularly writing for SYS-CON. This new SYS-CON author blog will be called Mobile Web 2.0 Spotlight.

spotlightThe Mobile Web 2.0 spotlight is a collection of the best services/products in relation to Mobile Web 2.0, as I see it. In addition, I am also especially keen to highlight products from start-ups/emerging companies in this space. I am happy to receive your recommendations for excellent products/services in the mobile web 2.0 space. As you can imagine, the analysis is completely independent. If I have any affiliation with a company/product; I shall state that in the blog.

It is indeed great to work with sys-con. I have had the pleasure of meeting the sys-con team and management, at the New York Real-World AJAX Seminar in June this year. I am also speaking at the AJAXWorld Conference & Expo in Santa Clara in Octpber and I look forward to meeting you there if you are attending

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
