BORDEAUX, France–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Luos, maker of open source software for edge and embedded distributed systems, today announced the opening of a Discord community for embedded and edge developers to exchange projects, problems and ideas – by sharing their knowledge and skills. Nearly 2,000 developers from around the world have joined the free and open site.
“We know how frustrating it can be to be faced with a problem in this area and not have access to others to help,” said Nicolas Rabault, co-founder and CEO of Luos. “It’s always interesting to hear the opinions of others, especially those who have been in a similar situation. We strongly believe in reuse to make projects more agile, as well as modularity to save time and improve productivity. »
The Discord community has grown rapidly since it was first made available several months ago. Members have helped others debug and resolve 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 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 “hardware” component running Luos) or multiple services on multiple nodes. For example, a smart farming system that can automatically irrigate a plot of land; a facial recognition robot capable of identifying the emotions of a face; or a smart parking system that can identify and monitor available spaces.
Founded in 2018 in Bordeaux, France, Luos provides a simple and lightweight containerization platform that enables microservices architecture for embedded and edge systems. Its powerful modular design can be used to simplify and tie any hardware component and application code into a single system image, making it easier to manage and upgrade.
