One rapidly growing scenario for our partners is IoT (Internet of Things). Our partner Adafruit is a catalyst in this space, selling open source hardware kits and tools to help tech gurus or everyday hobbyists create their own IoT products. “We hope to bring our open source values to a bigger audience which is why we’ve worked with Microsoft for IoT packs and to help get us started with our IoT efforts,” wrote Limor “Ladyada” Fried, Founder and Engineer at Adafruit.
“Our relationship started as hackers who brought makers into the Microsoft world with the Kinect and has expanded much further, developing Microsoft IoT Packs for Raspberry Pi 3 and Microsoft Azure IoT Starter Kits.” “People need to know how IoT works so we can create things together and Microsoft is helping us reach a broader audience.”
