Design is the seed corn for industrial development. Ideas may remain as ideas if not for design that realizes their true potential. Design brings ideas to fruition and puts products into the hands of consumers.
Indian Engineering Design Forum (IEDF) has been established to encourage innovation in engineeering design for the Indian context. It is a platform that facilitates young and experienced engineers to connect, collaborate and innovate. Being committed to education, the forum gives due importance to career growth and self-development. Polytechnic students, engineering undergraduates and working professionals will benefit directly from the forum's activities. The forum's advisory board of experienced and eminent engineers will offer technical and career guidance.
This website showcases design trends, news and events from around the world. It includes directories of engineering colleges, societies and regulatory bodies. The forum's blog will be supplemented by an e-newsletter to be distributed periodically.
Memberships is free for all. So, what are you waiting for? Register and get connected now.
The forum's activities span a broad range of verticals:

Do you miss water as much as we do? The California water crisis is causing an enormous drought in agriculture, jobs and revenue. That's why Samsung is hosting Makers Against Drought, a $100,000 challenge to makers who want to help solve the California water crisis with good technology and good ideas.
The Internet of Things can change the world, and we're offering our new ARTIK platform to help. As part of your solution, ARTIK has the power and flexibility to collect data at all scales of water consumption for new insights. Learn more!
Makers Against Drought is about building, and the competition happens in two stages. In the Challenge Building Period, makers submit their best solutions using ARTIK. Finalists will be selected to complete their solution in the Finalist Building Period, leading up to the Grand Prize.

There are few books out there that introduce IoT purely from the perspective of architecture. Perhaps this is because most are following the path laid out by IP, in particular, IPv6. This book by Francis daCosta is a welcome departure. The author dares to propose an alternative to IP. He argues that IP was designed to solve problems that are quite different from those IoT devices face. He proposes an alternative. He explains the motivations for his choice of technologies without boring the reader with mathematics or deep technical jargon.
