Python UUIDs

An interesting article I read on generating UUIDs using Python:

http://www.minvolai.com/blog/2009/10/Creating-Universally-Unique-ID-in-Python/creating-universally-unique-id-in-python/

I’m currently exploring the use of UUIDs to create unique identification for IoT sensor devices.

Will post more later here on what I find out and how I’ll implement it. I’m currently implementing a virtual sensor since I don’t have the actual devices. My host device for the sensor is a *NIX based system. e.g. Raspberry Pi Raspbian (for testing), MacOS (for development).
