Many Internet of Things (IoT) nodes will be built for highly constrained computing environments by developers with little knowledge of the hard won lessons of the embedded programming discipline. Without the benefit of these lessons, some IoT projects may fail in spite of being well architected and coded. The explosive growth of IoT means new developers are being drawn into IoT who may not be aware of what they are missing. Embedded developers often don't realize what new developers are missing, so they don't share. I intend to bridge that gap by starting a discussion of embedded software understanding like heap fragmentation and techniques like heap, stack, and thread management in order to encourage the flow of information between the groups. I'll show you how to let an application live forever and the reasons it might not.
