I wanted to let everyone know that the Erlang Ecosystem Foundation (EEF) has a working group dedicated to embedded systems and IoT. We have regular meetings where we review funding proposals and update each other on embedded Erlang news. It has been quite beneficial for many of us in the embedded community here.
Our current membership includes representation from the following projects and communities:
- Nerves Project
- Erlang on Yocto
- AtomVM (Erlang on ESP32 and other small microcontrollers)
- NervesJP (industrial embedded Elixir community in Japan)
I’m aware of other embedded Erlang and Elixir projects that don’t fit in the above categories and wanted to extend an invite out to anyone who would be interested in joining us. At the moment, joining the group requires some manual work, so please DM me or any other WG member if you’re interested.
If you just want to watch what we’re doing, we try to post what we’re up to at https://github.com/erlef/embedded-systems-wg and especially on the wiki.
