Six tips on how to break into a career developing IoT devices
Four stages in developing an IoT device
Assembly of the physical hardware: This requires engineering skills, and is usually not completed by a developer.
Programming the device: This requires programming skills to read the data from the sensors connected on the IoT device, and send them to the server.
Programming the server that will receive and store the data from the device: This requires the use of server side languages, like PHP, ASP.NET or Node.js, and database queries based on MySQL or some other SQL derivative.
