The Eclipse Foundation recently conducted an IoT survey that yielded some interesting results. The objective of their IoT Developer Survey was to gain a better understanding of the requirements, priorities, and perceptions of IoT developer communities. From February 2019 to March 2019, 1,717 individuals participated in the online survey. The survey was promoted on the Eclipse Foundation’s various social media channels, the Eclipse Foundation and Eclipse IoT Working Group websites. Additionally, the survey was promoted as on Eclipse IoT member company websites, social media platforms, and other communication streams.
