2020 IoT Developer Survey: Share What You Do to Shape the Industry

The Eclipse IoT working group is now running its annual IoT Developer Survey. It will stay open until June 26, 2020. We need your input to make it a success! In 2019, more than 1,700 developers participated, with 1,100 of them working on IoT projects in a professional capacity. We hope to get even more participants for this year’s edition.

Given how busy you are, why would you invest 10 minutes on this survey? By participating, you help us understand the latest IoT solutions and service development trends and how these will impact the market. In other words: you help us gather data that you will be able to use to inform your strategy and drive your business to success. Moreover, since the members of Eclipse IoT take a close look at the results, you can influence their roadmaps by participating to the survey. Where else will you find a direct line to Bosch, Eurotech, Red Hat and many other IoT leaders?

With 45 projects and more than 40 member organizations, Eclipse IoT is already the largest open source IoT community in the industry. This year, we designed the survey in collaboration with the Eclipse Edge Native and Eclipse Sparkplug working groups. This means we added a few questions specific to edge computing, and will also measure the usage of the Sparkplug protocol. 

By the way, our IoT Developer Survey is completely distinct from our IoT Commercial Adoption Survey. We will run the second edition of the IoT Commercial Adoption Survey in the fall of 2020. That survey, less technical in nature, aims to go beyond the developer perspective to understand the IoT solutions organizations are deploying right now and their plans for future deployments.

Please take the time to fill our 2020 IoT Developer Survey. I look forward to analyzing the data!

IoT Developer Survey 2019: the Key Trends

Introduction 2019 marked the fifth anniversary of the Eclipse IoT Developer Survey. This edition is without a doubt the best yet. More than 1700 persons participated; that's about three times more than last year!

As usual, the aim of the survey was to look at the IoT landscape to understand the key trends for people building IoT solutions and identify the relevant technologies and standards. You can find the results of our previous surveys on the Eclipse IoT website.
Executive Summary Our key findings for this edition of the survey are:
IoT drives real outcomes today.  65% of respondents are currently working on IoT projects or will be in the next 18 monthsAWS, Azure, and GCP are the leading IoT cloud platformsIoT developers mostly use C, C++, Java, JavaScript, and PythonMQTT is still the dominant communication protocol leveraged by developersThe Eclipse Desktop IDE is the leading IDE for building IoT applications  A deeper look at our key findings IoT drives real outcomes today O…

The Eclipse IoT MQTT Sandbox Is On the Move!

For many years, the Eclipse Foundation has offered an MQTT sandbox to the IoT developer community. That sandbox was maintained by Foundation staff and was running on Foundation infrastructure. The goal was to encourage and facilitate the evaluation of Eclipse Paho and Eclipse Mosquitto, and to foster interoperability among MQTT implementations. Today, I have the pleasure to announce the deployment of a new community-run MQTT sandbox to replace it.

What will change? — In a user perspective, just the domain name. The old sandbox was available at iot.eclipse.org. The new one will be available at mqtt.eclipse.org. As before, port 1883 will be used for standard connections and port 8883 for connections over TLS.

What will happen — For the time being, the DNS record for mqtt.eclipse.org points to the old sandbox. On July 16 2019 at 10:00 EDT, the IT team will switch that DNS record to the new one.

The admins for the new sandbox will only be able to generate the digital certificates for TLS c…

A Virtual Event With a Focus on the Real World

April 9, 2020 was supposed to be a big day for the Eclipse IoT, Eclipse Edge Native and Eclipse Sparkplug communities. We were planning to gather in a room of the San Jose Convention Center to have a full day of presentations and networking. Unfortunately, that event got cancelled due to the Coronarivus pandemic.

Given we had such a strong speaker lineup, we decided to organize a virtual event instead. The Eclipse Virtual IoT and Edge Native Day will be held on May 28, 2020 from 10:00 to 16:00 Eastern Daylight time. The theme for the day is "Our Open Source Ecosystem Means Business". Each of the talks we have focuses on real-world technology that you can use right away to build IoT and Edge Computing solutions.

I will have the pleasure to kick start the day with a session describing how you can leverage our most popular IoT and edge computing projects. I will also cover the latest developments in our three working groups.
