IoT in two minutes with Mongoose OS and AWS IoT


What’s the problem?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the third major computing revolution, the story so far being

Personal computing Cloud computing and now Ubiquitous computing (IoT)

The most annoying challenges in the Internet of Things (IoT) are connecting Things to the cloud safely, managing your Things, and updating them.

What’s the solution?

Mongoose-OS is the new hotness that solves all these problems for you out of the box, and lets you skip ahead to the cool stuff.

Mongoose OS gives you:

  • Painless installation of an OS core on your devices, up and running in two minutes
  • Coding in Javascript (or C if you’re kinky like that)
  • A nice web IDE
  • Remote management
  • Over-the-air updates

and for a bonus you get ludicrously easy enrolment in Amazon’s IoT framework, giving your Things access to all the features of AWS IoT, Lambda and the whole cloud enchilada.
