Exploring the IoT universe – Risks and potential

This month, we are happy to present you with a double issue of JAX Magazine!

In the first section, we explore the wonders of the IoT universe as we document its remarkable expansion over the past years. It is estimated that there will be more than 65 billion IoT devices plugged into this network by the year 2025, compared to just 7 billion in 2018. If that is not a universal expansion, I don’t know what is!

In the second section, we have a JAX London Special prepared for you! At JAX London, we are bringing together cutting-edge software engineers and enterprise-level professionals innovating the fields of Java, microservices, continuous delivery and DevOps.

Happy reading!
