MQTT: The Go-To Protocol for Distributed IoT and Tutorial

Imagine you have to deploy a dozen various devices throughout a factory floor. These consist of Linux PCs, low power embedded devices, a mobile phone app, simple sensors, and a remote database. Some devices are connected through Ethernet, while other more remote devices utilize a cell network to occasionally phone home. The problem you now have is, how do I get these devices communicating with each other in real time? MQTT is an ISO standard protocol used to solve this problem.

Stack overflows can be one of the most difficult bugs to squash. An overflow is often hidden in a cryptic, non-static error state. Sometimes the application runs without issue. Sometimes it may hard fault and reset the hardware without warning. It may be overwriting data unbeknown to application designer. The worst error state is the dreaded heisenbug: an error that seems to vanish when you go looking for the cause.
