Say WoT? Connecting devices using standard APIs, or the „Web Of Things“
WoT - or "Web of Things" is a W3C working group, and they're about to specify how IoT things can be described in terms of their interactions with each other. This opens up a door to an architecture where devices can communicate using open, self-describeable APIs. This post is about the basics of the Web Of Things and contains a bunch of pointers to more resources.

Inter-connecting IoT devices with APIs
The numbers of IoT devices is on the rise, both in projected figures and devices really being deployed. As of now, most constrained devices are likely to send their data to backend cloud services, but device-to-device connectivity is also on the rise. So what choices do have developers today to have their constrained IoT devices expose an API and be reachable by other devices or gateways?
