Slyft: Building embedded devices for IoT

Slyft opens the door to IoT development for every product developer and development team by introducing proven programming techniques from web architectures to embedded IoT development. It is fundamentally a code generator that uses Schema and API design languages to generate source code for these systems at the touch of a button. It works on the basis of generic specifications, regardless of the language, target platform, protocol or data format. Source code can be instantly integrated in your development project, significantly reducing the extensive development work normally required for the implementation of the service layer and making the creation of device API easy for both embedded and web developers. Its simplicity ensures that your IoT projects get off the ground fast. Its flexibility and scalability ensure sustainable success.
