[riot-devel] IoT technology survey

Hi Michael, hi Emmanuel,

IMHO its not a really surprising outcome.
We (especially me) just have a very restricted, not saying stubborn, impression that IoT is only == "some kind of sensor/actuator network driven by small microcontrollers".
But the buzzword IoT is commonly considered everything not being a classic computer and connected with the internet, preferably but not necessarily over some wireless connection.
So a smartphone, tablet, a fritzbox with a webserver, heating system steerable/configurable with an App over wifi, fringe that spams me with tweets to buy milk ... fits this buzzword. And in the named cases the devices often use some sort of linux providing a web-service for login/configure stuff.

Best regards,

Hi Michael,
Yes, the results are somewhat puzzling.
Maybe the people who answered the survey were probably of the "rasberryPi=IoT" type, which might explain some results.
With this in mind, there is probably something to get out of the results.

so, here are (if I see this correctly) are the results


I'm a bit puzzled about the 11.2 % considering php an IoT programming
language (and apparently using it) - on the other hand there are 73 % who
consider Linux an IoT operating system. Anyway, maybe it's worthwhile for
somebody to read it during hers/his lunch break.
