    AWS IoT Core

    End-to-end encryption is an amazing feature because we use IoT to connect to various devices in order to gather data/ stats in real-time. We're able to publish solutions with ease and at a faster rate because of AWS IoT Core. However, its inability to interact with other IoT tools is a big con that I would like them to improve upon.

    React

    React is great for people who are trying to build complex single page web applications. It is intuitive for developers, encourages modularity through components, and provides a web app this will scale. React may not be suited as well for simple websites or static content. However, this is changing with frameworks like Gatsby which allow you to build static HTML websites using React.

    Pros

    AWS IoT Core

    • AWS IoT Core integrates power analytics and an AI solution for sensor data processing.
    • Great protocol support including HTTPs and MQTT required to connect resource constraint IoT devices to cloud
    • High security standards during data transmission
    • Scalability and a great user community

    React

    • React is designed around the notion of generated html as opposed to templated html. This provides more flexibility in building elements on a page, and allows developers to create html that is programmatically configured based on runtime considerations.
    • React uses JSX, which is HTML templating integrated into javascript code. This simplifies the generation of complex structures, especially those that vary based on runtime and interactive data.
    • React is more efficient because it generates a virtual DOM rather than directly building in in the actual DOM. By building 'offline' in this manner, the DOM generation is faster. After building, it can be installed in one operation.
    • React only builds those portions of the display that have changed, making display updates more efficient.

    Cons

    AWS IoT Core

    • Ability to integrate with Ethercalc software solution
    • Ability to introduce NFC toolchains and systems which could be utilized in iot modular gateway solutions like drones
    • Ability to reduce latency as the solution scales is very much needed
    • Hybrid solution which can integrate other existing iot solutions into AWS iot core

    React

    • React could get very frustrating unless you start thinking in React. React enforces a top down hierarchy of data flow and offers no way for the data to communicate backwards. This is a big shift in mindset coming from Angular 1.x. This constraint is really a big factor that determines how to organize your code and how you might want to write your own Components.
    • Because of the self imposed top down hierarchy, you end up having a heavy parents with dumb children. Because parents would need to the bulk of the work, they usually manage the state, while passing callbacks to the child components. If not properly designed, this could lead to the callback hell, where you could have callbacks passing through like multiple children.
    • As with any library, you will have to iterate through multiple designs to come up with a ways to avoid "heavy parent components" in React. One obvious solution is using some open source tools like Redux, but we opted for a variation of it to suit our needs.

    After adopting AWS IoT Core in our company it became clear that the whole platform was designed with usability in mind. It not only refers to IoT Core, but also applies to the remaining Amazon services. What we like the most is the fact that every phase from provisioning to maintaining provides great level of usability.

    React is just a bit of a different animal. I was avoiding it for the longest time. I thought for sure I would land on Vue or something else with a more approachable and familiar appearance. But after taking an online course in React, I started realize what people were raving about (and complaining about) and decided to implement it at our office for one of our products.

    I give it this rating because the support is always there if we need help, but they aren't always able to help us with our problems and sometimes have to transfer us to another support technician. So overall, the support for AWS IoT is pretty good and I am very satisfied with it.

    Since it's open-source and very popular, the community support for React and related tools and libraries is excellent. There are a lot of people using the same tools, and so issues tend to get fixed quickly and "recipes" are easy to come by. And since it's backed by Facebook, they have a dedicated engineering team working on the progression of React.

    Alternatives Considered

    AWS IoT Core

    Azure IoT service provides more or less the same services as compared to AWS IoT core, however the costing of AWS lead us to continued usage of IoT core over Azure IoT services.Also, considering our existing technology stack is on AWS, it was a natural selection for better integration and ease of use.

    React

    I have also used Angular before coming to React. Web apps created with React are much faster than Angular because React is based on virtual DOM which reloads only those components of the web page that change and everything else remains the same. Angular's learning curve is also slightly steeper than React.

    Return on Investment

    AWS IoT Core

    • Gives confidence to prototype iot solutions across lots of devices in little time
    • Ability to meet requirements for managing a variety of communication protocols
    • Learning iot analytics and visualization for faster insights enablement
    • Onboarding devices and managing quickly without building inhouse solutions

    React

    • React allows a modular design, which is fabulous for A/B testing (showing a different module to each user). Some of these experiments had an improvement as big as to pay for the whole team that coded it. So far we know the ROI has been positive, but I can't provide a number.
