If you’ve been keeping up with our articles you’d know just how big the Industrial Internet of Things is ( if you haven’t, you might want to start with IIoT Introduction, IoT vs. IIoT ) and if you know how big IIoT is, we know you’ve been waiting for this next article. In this write-up, we will be taking a closer look at some of the Programming Languages you could be using in an IIoT implementation.
The Path of the Historian
Even though we haven’t begun to break the surface of IIoT, it’s easy to imagine the type of impact this technology will have across all industries. It’s already begun with the car industry and self driving cars. Soon we’ll be seeing computer driven automation and efficiency in almost every aspect of our life. If you are a developer that’s looking for work, I can guarantee you that businesses will be looking for many talented people like you to fill their growing technology needs. But what skills do you need for the future?
The development of the Industrial Internet of Things represents a large technological investment in our future. It will take thousands of hours just to establish proper protocols for these advanced networks; the very same networks that will be connecting and facilitating communication between the smart factory and nearly every single useful data point about itself.
