Luos, maker of open source software for edge and embedded distributed systems, has announced the opening of a Discord community for edge and embedded developers to exchange projects, issues, and ideas – sharing their knowledge and skills. Nearly 2,000 developers from around the world have joined the free, open site.
The Discord community has grown quickly since being made available several months ago. Members have helped others to debug and with configuration issues, provided advice on the best hardware for a particular project, and posted links to share resources and information.
The Luos team is developing an open-source solution using microservices concepts for embedded and edge systems. This makes it easy to share and reuse functionality in project implementations that include the Internet of Things (IoT) and embedded applications.
The Luos microservices architecture provides flexibility for unlimited project possibilities – running as a single service on a single node (physical component “hardware” running Luos) or several services on several nodes. For example, an intelligent agriculture system that can automatically irrigate a plot of land; a facial recognition robot that can identify the emotions in a face; or a smart parking system that can identify and monitor available spaces.
