The Eclipse IoT working group is now running its annual IoT Developer Survey. It will stay open until June 26, 2020. We need your input to make it a success! In 2019, more than 1,700 developers participated, with 1,100 of them working on IoT projects in a professional capacity. We hope to get even more participants for this year’s edition.
Given how busy you are, why would you invest 10 minutes on this survey? By participating, you help us understand the latest IoT solutions and service development trends and how these will impact the market. In other words: you help us gather data that you will be able to use to inform your strategy and drive your business to success. Moreover, since the members of Eclipse IoT take a close look at the results, you can influence their roadmaps by participating to the survey. Where else will you find a direct line to Bosch, Eurotech, Red Hat and many other IoT leaders?
With 45 projects and more than 40 member organizations, Eclipse IoT is already the largest open source IoT community in the industry. This year, we designed the survey in collaboration with the Eclipse Edge Native and Eclipse Sparkplug working groups. This means we added a few questions specific to edge computing, and will also measure the usage of the Sparkplug protocol.
By the way, our IoT Developer Survey is completely distinct from our IoT Commercial Adoption Survey. We will run the second edition of the IoT Commercial Adoption Survey in the fall of 2020. That survey, less technical in nature, aims to go beyond the developer perspective to understand the IoT solutions organizations are deploying right now and their plans for future deployments.
Please take the time to fill our 2020 IoT Developer Survey. I look forward to analyzing the data!
