The IoT Developer Survey, by The Eclipse Foundation, is the industry’s largest developer survey. These surveys centralise useful, high-level information about the IoT industry for anyone to use. The goal of the survey is to present a better understanding of the IoT industry; the challenges developers face, and to provide insight into developer communities around the world.
Last year’s results saw over 1,700 responses, two-thirds of which were professionals working on IoT projects. This year we, Canonical, encourage you to take the Eclipse survey whether you are an enterprise IoT director, a scientist, a hobbyist, or somebody else. We want to understand the opinions of people working in IoT so that we can use the results to guide our own decisions.
The 2019 survey focused on the requirements, priorities, and perceptions of developer communities. It gave ‘on-the-ground’ insights into how IoT solutions are built, and data on the most popular architectures, technologies, and tools. The 2019 survey indicated that IoT development is fueled by the growth of investments in industrial markets. And it highlighted a developer focus on areas like IoT platforms, home automation, and industrial automation.
This year, the survey focuses on IoT solutions, development trends, and what those trends mean for businesses. The survey also asks about the use of edge computing to influence the roadmap of the Eclipse Edge Native working group. If there are enough responses, we too plan on using the results of this survey to guide our roadmap decisions.
The survey should only take ten minutes and submissions will close on the 26th of June. Please share this survey – the more data, the better – https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/EclipseIoTWG20
