What is stopping you from building your IoT projects?

Something that has become more obvious to be while writing material in the Internet of Things space is that there's an invisible barrier stopping a lot of people from executing on their awesome IoT project Ideas.


The common things I hear

  1. I don't know how to do Electronics, and that seems pretty crucial...

  2. I'm not sure what to buy, or where to buy it from...

  3. I hear about security issues, I don't want to build something that's vulnerable to attacks.

  4. I'm just not interested
