FAQ
Which programming languages are suitable for edge IoT devices and gateways?

Seasoned developers say that the best programming language for IoT devices is C and C++, mainly due to their memory management and runtime capabilities. However, you may also find some experts considering Go and JavaScript the decent ones because of their versatility and ease of use.

What are the approaches used in IoT application development?

Any experienced IoT developer today is aware of two types of layer-based IoT architectures: 3-layered architecture (consists of the perception layer, the network layer, and the application layer) and 5-layered architecture (covers the perception layer, the transport layer, the processing layer, the application layer, and the business layer).

What are the features to consider when choosing IoT programming frameworks?

When choosing the right IoT platform, it’s important to review the following factors, such as connectivity management (the framework should be compatible with the required tech stack – WiFi, 4G, IoT, BLE, and Bluetooth, etc), scalability, security, usability (typically, from the perspectives of the end-users and maintenance team) and adjustability to the latest technological changes.

How much does it cost to hire IoT developers with JavaScript experience?

The cost of hiring dedicated experts with proven expertise in different programming languages for IoT development fluctuates. It depends on their skillset, rates, and scope of work. To get more accurate estimations on hiring IoT experts in JS programming, it’s recommended to contact your development vendor, who can calculate the overall cost, introduce the most efficient hiring model and introduce the experts available to work with.

What is the most cost-effective programming language for IoT development?

Based on Webbylab’s extensive experience in IoT development, one of the most affordable IoT programming languages in 2023 is C. Java features an extremely simple and versatile programming workflow, provides hardware secure libraries, and has easy-to-deploy reusable codes. On the contrary, C language can work directly with RAM and doesn’t require a lot of processing power. These features make both C and Java the most popular programming languages in IoT.
