Colin Vernon - Cloud Platform Lead, littleBits

For the past two years, Colin has lead the littleBits engineering team. Most recently, as littleBits' cloud platform lead, he spearheaded littleBits' newly announced cloudBit, which allows anyone to turn any object into an internet-connected smart device – no soldering, wiring or programming required. Prior to his work at littleBits, Colin was the founder of Montreal-based Stresslimit Design for over a decade. From his years of experience in the technology industry, Colin can speak to the importance of interconnectivity, the relationship between hardware and software, the growing trend of IoT and his personal experiences with building software and prototyping tools for IoT.
