Standardize, improve, and promote the APIs, tooling, and infrastructure for building embedded systems and IoT devices using Erlang VMs
We need to get the word out among embedded systems designers in the BEAM community that this working group exists. There are a lot of areas that the working group could address. A first deliverables would be to survey embedded systems developers in the BEAM community to identify needs so that the working group can focus their efforts. Completing this survey need not delay funding of embedded systems working group stipend proposals of common interest.
The embedded systems and IoT space is larger than any one project can address. Having a working group to align common concerns across embedded projects in BEAM languages will increase the quality of existing solutions and enable us to push forward in areas where we’re deficient. Additionally, the long life cycles of commercial embedded devices requires companies to evaluate the long-term viability of their software stacks. The Erlang Ecosystem and an active embedded systems working group provide this assurance for the BEAM and the embedded use case in a way that can outlast the current set of individuals, companies and consultancies involved with embedded Erlang and Elixir.
