How can I make the jump to working in an internet of things-related area?


I am a back-end developer who has had some success in recent years working on apps for a number of online platforms, including retail and publishing. However, I find that the daily job is getting a bit over-familiar.

I am interested in moving into an internet-of-things-based area such as programmes and appliances for smart homes. I am experienced in HTML5, Objective-C, C++ and Java and I tend to adapt quickly to new programming languages. What advice do you give for making the transition? And are there opportunities in Hong Kong or would it be better to look elsewhere?
