After almost five years with the Eclipse Foundation, I have decided to resign from my current position and will now be looking for new challenges. The Eclipse Foundation—and the Eclipse community at large—are pretty much family to me, so this has been a tough decision.
Last week, we launched the fifth edition of our Open IoT Challenge. It is really exciting to be back, and I am really looking forward to seeing what people will be building! The Open IoT Challenge encourages IoT enthusiasts and developers to build innovative applications for the Internet of Things using open standards and open source technology.
So it’s been a while since the last time I blogged about a cool IoT demo… Sorry about that! On the bright side, this post covers a couple projects that are really, really, neat so hopefully, this will help you forgive me for the wait!
Projects hosted by the Eclipse Foundation will soon benefit from a brand new enterprise-grade continuous integration (CI) infrastructure. Expected improvements are: resiliency, scalability and nimbleness. We are doing this move with tremendous support from our friends at CloudBees and RedHat with their respective products Jenkins Enterprise and OpenShift Container Platform.
It’s now been a bit over two months since the participants to the Open IoT Challenge have started to work on their projects, and like every year, I am pretty impressed by the creativity and the technical skills of all the teams.
For the past three years, we have been partnering with a number of organizations – IEEE, Open Mobile Alliance and Agile-IoT – to get a sense of the general trends in the IoT industry through an online survey.
