Eclipse IOT Survey results 2019

Thu May 16, 2019 2:28 pm

Eclipse has just published the results of their IOT survey for this year at https://iot.eclipse.org/iot-developer-surveys/

Spoilers for TL;DR folk (my comments in brackets):

Security concerns dropping (bodes well - NOT) but privacy rising (I assume general populous do not see a connection)
Connectivity issues are rising (maybe too many platforms)
Platform still #1 focus (I have a tool that I can sell - someone else can find a job for it)
OS selection is a total mess (and thats a surprise - NOT)
Raspbian comes second to Ubuntu / Ubuntu core in Linux use
Windows followed by FreeRTOS in none Linux with a massive drop on no OS (Arduino / ESP / Microchip chips dropping out of favour as power rises?)
Arm rules the edge world at 68%
Communication security / encryption and tokens still main security methods
AWS / Azure / Google have the cloud market
Languages used is a mix with C on edge with Java on gateways & cloud (C on constrained devices - Arduino etc I assume)
HTTP / MQTT / Web sockets main three protocols used
TCP/IP, WiFi, Ethernet for connectivity (traditional home automation ones such as Zigbee / Z-Wave used on 8-15%)
IDEs - Eclipse , VS Code, Notepad++ (note survey was done by Eclipse)
Eclipse / Apache / Linux Foundation most influential (Apache?)
Need Pi spray - these things are breeding in my house...

According to Eclipse, something is rotten in the state of IoT: every single concern is rising this year, except security...
Nothing worky, no need to worry about security then.
Or perhaps Ecplise has changed its methodology year-over-year.

I know IoT is a fuzzy domain, but that report looks fairly useless to me. Esp. this 2019 edition.
