5 Things I Learnt at IoT World 2016

Last week I attended IoT World in Santa Clara. It was a great event, and what was particularly exciting was to meet with adopters of Eclipse IoT technology who stopped by our booth. It just felt incredibly energizing (and even more so given I had to spend 2.5 hours at US immigration the day before the show, which was quite annoying, to say the least), and moments like this are why I love my job, really.

Can open source solve the too many IoT standards problem?

An important issue in the IoT industry is the plethora of IoT standards that exist today and new standards being created. The current situation for IoT standards has been described as a ‘Trainwreck for IoT Vendors‘ and the implication being IoT solutions are going to be pretty dumb.

Great Fixes from Eric Williams

Updating to GTK3 has been a bit of a challenge. While researching this problem earlier this year, I ran across countless blog posts, and forum comments from all sorts of open source project teams that were frustrated with their own efforts to update to GTK. Some had starting making plans to just abandon it, but that’s just not a realistic option for the Eclipse Platform.

In an Eclipse IDE, Quick Access will take you quickly to the feature you need. To activate Quick Access, type Ctrl+3 and start typing (or click in the entry field in the toolbar and start typing).

Installing the Zulu open source Java Virtual Machine on Raspberry Pi

I’ve recently been playing with the early-access version of Zulu Embedded for ARM32. Zulu is an open-source and certified build of OpenJDK. It is a great alternative to the JRE from Oracle as it does not requires you to pay any licenses, and it is also a huge improvement over the OpenJDK build you can get off the Debian repositories, which is not really optimized for ARM (and that’s a euphemism! :smile:).

Running Eclipse Che on a Raspberry Pi

Eclipse Che is a very cool Eclipse technology that provides you with a browser-based IDE that can be extended with plug-ins for virtually any language, framework, or tool that you may want to use in your day-to-day development.

This means that, right from your browser, you can do Java development and have Maven automatically build your stuff, or do Javascript development and still be able to easily integrate with e.g grunt to build your website.
