Targeting Real-World Challenges With Open Source Research Projects

This month, we feature three articles that highlight how research projects hosted at the Eclipse Foundation target key challenges developers face in their everyday work.
You’ll learn:
  • How the SmartCLIDE research project is developing a new cloud native IDE that makes it easier to develop and deploy cloud services.
  • Why participants in the now-completed PDP4E research project are proposing a new working group focused on privacy models.
  • How the BRAIN-IoT Platform simplifies and automates several management procedures to make life easier for IoT systems developers, and operators. 
We also introduce you to Sebastian Schildt, a dedicated committer on the Eclipse Kuksa project who first became involved with the Eclipse Foundation through the ITEA/APPSTACLE research project.
Be sure to check our Community Updates section for the latest news about EclipseCon, the recent Eclipse IDE release, developer surveys, and opportunities to join our team.
Enjoy the read,

Research Relations Director, Eclipse Foundation
