(Cliff) Introduction

Hello and welcome to episode #35 of the IoT weekly Podcast, brought to you by Gearforge Software. My name is Cliff, and I'm joined by my co-host and good friend, Matthew.

(Cliff) What We Have Been Doing

Matthew : So much Javascript. I'm living and dreaming Javascript. I woke up thinking about Javascript. Also, wrote a cool script to back-process our episodes as videos for Youtube.

Cliff : Up to my neck in solenoids and inductive proximity sensors. Also I finally get to have a chance to use the twilio api.

Zeineb: Walking, so much walking. So much sun.

(Zeineb) Feedback

Cliff: We got a very interesting call from a concerned citizen with some rogue appliances.
