A software foundry that helps drive IoT innovation, global adoption, market velocity and scale at the edge

EdgeX Community Resources

EdgeX Foundry is a community driven, vendor neutral open source project building a common open framework for IoT edge computing.

IOTech are playing leading role at the heart of the project are committed to the evolution of EdgeX and expanding the community ecosystem.  IOTech’s CEO Keith Steele is currently on the EdgeX Foundry Board of Directors and is Chair of the Technical Steeing Committee (TSC). IOTech’s Product Director Andrew Foster is Chair of the QA and Testing Working Group.

In addition to IOTech’s commercial EdgeX derived products the community itself provides many complementary resources that are useful to both IoT developers, architects, project and business leaders focused on developing IoT edge solutions. This page provide access to many of these key resources that will aid you on your journey to successful IoT deployment.
