I’m Omer, the Head of Sales for Cesanta. I joined in July 2015 after working for Google and Twitter for a number of years. My career actually started as a developer, but I soon discovered that I’m better at talking to people about the solutions they need, than coding them - leave that to the experts! My Turkish background means I love good weather and good food. While I miss the Mediterranean sun in Ireland, I can help you with great Dublin restaurant recommendations if you ever need one!

What is the larger Internet of Things potential for refrigerators?

But, what happens when Over-The-Air Updates (OTA) and Security are not given the same amount of consideration?

I wanted to share few thoughts with you on why I think it is an opportunity for consumers as well as the manufacturers.
