It’s that time of year again – our favourite blogs of the year! The selection criterion was simple: which blogs did we remember the most, told an interesting story or were the most entertaining. Without further ado, here they are in chronological order:
- Unravelling the Internet of Things: What Does it Really Mean to be on the IOT?
In this blog from early on in the year, John Wetherill talks about all things IoT. He examines its emergence, what it means to be IoT, and where it’s all going. It’s a really interesting piece and everyone should check it out.

Our Director of Engineering, Tom Radcliffe, wrote a really interesting blog on wxPython and tkinter. I’m not a developer or will work with any of this, but I found it really fascinating.
