The right spot between one-off and immediately reusable
Finding that place is always a struggle in every part of software development; the user who is paying wants a thing that works for that user, as close to perfectly as possible, the developers and industry in general who are doing much of the work want things as reusable as possible, and the system generally pops up something in between, which is at least satisfactory if not wonderful.  The Verizon IoT Marketplace seems to be structured to let people find that happy middle zone with much less difficulty; that's a really smart move on Verizon's part, as it is very apt to pull tech development strongly their way.

Verizon IoT Marketplace
This is exciting news. I am impressed that Verizon has 2,000 partners in IoT. It is great that the partners are supportive in the IoT space. It has great potential for being the next great transformation.

Curious to see what apps, services and products the partners plan on producing.

Yes! I'm just hoping that it's something worth waiting and being excited for. Any new projects, especially coming from Verizon, get me curious and anxious to see what's to come.

Re: The right spot between one-off and immediately reusable
It reminds me a bit of WordPress's plugins "marketplace" - acombination of "plug & play" options for the less technically adept and visibility for innovative developers.

Re: The right spot between one-off and immediately reusable
faryl,

It's also a slowly developing idea in software development (a metadevelopment?): the line between users and programming can be gradually broken down by just recording what successful users do.  That was a big part of the evolution of R out of S: R gave S users who didn't "program" per se but used S as a complicated calculator/display/access program  a way to make sure they did the same exact steps the same exact way every time.

It will be interesting to see if any "cottage industries" grow out of it. ("Meta development" - I like it!)

Re: The right spot between one-off and immediately reusable
faryl,

Well, another way to look at it is that the course of metadevelopment is producing software that learns in a more and more human way. Already the machine intelligence folk routinely talk of "training an algorithm," by which they mean rewarding it by copying and incorporating it whenever it does something they like, and the analogy to training flatworms or goldfish is pretty clear. The step beyond training, of course, is education (meta-metadevelopment? Or is that just getting too silly?) Instead of just successfully copying the tricks of the human operator, the software learns to think like the human....but better?

I hope they'll be nice when they take over.

In case they are reading this, I welcome our software overlords and think they are quite good-looking and very clever.

@John:

Amazing analogy ! I like your mention of meta development as well as how you explained with R / S scenario.
