Each month, I work with various technical experts to create and publish a new issue of the Eclipse Newsletter. The theme changes every month; this month it was Eclipse IoT! The articles feature four great IoT projects: Eclipse Hono, Eclipse ioFog, Eclipse Kapua, and Eclipse Vorto. Thank you to the authors for taking the time to write this content.

I’m hoping to fit the following talks into my schedule.
Monday was a big day for the Open IoT Challenge participants. It was the day they had to submit their final solution after 3 months of hard work! 10 teams came through with some great solutions. Here are their final reports:
