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?
