Just do itOn our journey to Automating Intelligence for our Buildings we are constantly asked how can I learn more about "IT"  the Internet of Things that is disrupting us?

My young mentors and I have been pushing back and forth this question of "How did you get so smart?"

The answer is common. the Nike approach "Just Do It" and learn what you need to know..  good advice.

Reading our online magazine is a start but only you know what you need to know.

Please send us links to your favourite resources.

We cannot teach you but we can provide links to resources that may help you. It is an interesting observation, you can not do what we do if you are not autodidactic?

So this is collection of links to get you started on your journey.

I recommend you look closely at the young folks around you to help you grow younger.  Help them to gather their thoughts and share them in a meaningful way with you and the industry at large. Our future depends on it.  No young people around you?  Now that is a problem in today's rapid digital transformations.
