Travelling has downsides. Especially when coming back to the office to catch up with all the tasks being actively postponed. One of them has been sitting here for too long: It took me a while to get this latest review for Packt Publishing out the door.

Today on Facebook’s F8 conference they announced Parse for IoT. This a cool, but not unexpected move, especially since there is demand to have connected objects being part of an (enterprise) cloud systems.
