To help you keep track of everything going on in the Eclipse community, we’re publishing the 2021 editorial calendar for the Eclipse Community Newsletter. Here is what you can expect in your inbox each month:
Today, we’re announcing that the Eclipse Foundation has successfully completed all of the necessary formalities and has formally established the Eclipse Foundation AISBL, an international non-profit association based in Brussels, Belgium.
As a European-based global organization, the Eclipse Foundation is in the ideal position to build on the growing momentum of strategic open source in Europe and on our strength in the region to support open source innovation globally.
For some reason, the tradition amongst most technology pundits is to spend the waning weeks and days of the past year making prognostications about what’s to come. I’m all for introspection, but making guesses right before the holidays usually means I’m going to forget what I said (wrote?) after my holiday break. Besides, I’d much rather focus on beginnings than endings.
The results of our 2020 IoT Developer Survey are in, revealing a number of interesting trends that will impact all IoT ecosystem players. Whether you’re a technology manufacturer, a service provider, an enterprise adopter of IoT solutions, or an individual developer, this year’s survey results provide insight that will help you better understand how developers’ choices are impacting IoT strategies and businesses.
In May we announced that the Eclipse Foundation is becoming a Belgian international nonprofit association. I wanted to take this opportunity to provide you with an update on the progress of the transition, the next steps, and what it all means to our global community of developers and diverse membership base.
Year after year, surveys conducted by the Eclipse Foundation have showed that most IoT developers leverage open source technologies. In the 2019 Commercial IoT Adoption Survey, for example, 60% of respondents stated that their organization is factoring open source into its IoT deployment plans. This clearly means the dominant IoT platforms in the market will either be open source or based on an open source core.
Completing the 2020 IoT Developer Survey takes less than ten minutes of your time. But adding your voice helps the entire IoT ecosystem better understand where IoT solution development is headed, the technology stack being used to get there, and how edge computing fits into the picture. By participating in the IoT industry’s largest developer survey, you have a unique opportunity to influence the direction the ecosystem takes at a time when it’s rapidly evolving.
Today we are announcing that the Eclipse Foundation is transitioning itself to become a European-based organization, specifically a Belgian international nonprofit association. I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you our plans for the transition and what the announcement means to our community.
