About Us

You found it!

Here are the IoT war stories you’ve always wanted to hear. The engaging, enlightening, and downright embarrassing stories of IoT implementations from IoT experts around the world. We get them to share what worked, what didn’t, and what was flat-out embarrassing as they soldiered on to a successful IoT implementation.

Whether you’re an executive interested in the ways that IoT applications can improve your bottom line or an engineer currently working on – or planning to start – developing IoT deployments, you can gain unique insights from the stories you hear on our show (and avoid the missteps and mistakes of our guests!).  After each episode of First Things First, you’ll leave with ideas based on real-world experience about what works – and as important, what doesn’t – in the world of IoT.
