Tuesday, May 28, 2024 - 12:41 by Clark Roundy

Exciting news - the 2024 IoT & Embedded Developer Survey is now open! This comprehensive survey provides developers and industry professionals with a unique opportunity to shape the future of IoT and embedded systems by sharing their insights and experiences.

Since 2015, we've been at the forefront of exploring the IoT development landscape, uncovering invaluable insights into the challenges faced by developers, the usage of programming languages, operating systems, architectures, and the industries that benefit from IoT innovation.

Last year's survey highlighted the prominence of AI in edge computing workloads, identified industrial automation and agriculture as leading IoT & edge market segments, and noted an overall increase in development activities across all sectors. Your input is crucial in assessing how the landscape has evolved since then.

This year, our focus extends to the embedded systems industry, looking into whether the factors impacting IoT development are also influencing embedded developers. Key areas of focus include:

  • Security and Deployment Concerns: What are the challenges and priorities of today's developers amidst growing cybersecurity concerns?
  • Open Source Engagement: How are developers engaging with open source projects to drive innovation within IoT and embedded applications? 
  • Developer Preferences: What features and functionality do developers prioritise when it comes to application development frameworks?
  • Influence of Safety Certifications: How do safety certifications impact adoption of operating systems or other software components in embedded applications?
  • Hardware Platforms: Which architectures are favoured by device designers? 
  • Operating Systems: What are the dominant real-time operating systems for embedded devices? What are the preferred options for edge nodes?
