Vendor-neutral, open source, loosely-coupled microservices framework providing you the choice to plug and play from a growing ecosystem of available 3rd party offerings or augment with your own proprietary innovations. With a focus on the IoT Edge, EdgeX simplifies the process to Design, Develop and Deploy solutions across industrial, enterprise, and consumer applications.
Once you’ve learned how EdgeX works in the Getting Started pages above, it’s time to start building your own solutions on top of it. The EdgeX Foundry provides a wealth of documentation, tutorials and AP references to help you with that.
EdgeX is a community developed project, and participation is open to everyone. You can talk directly to developers building the core EdgeX microservices as well as solutions on top of EdgeX Foundry in our mailing lists and chat.
Working toward a common open platform
EdgeX Foundry is an open source project that is building a common open platform for IoT edge computing. The interoperable platform enables an ecosystem of plug-and-play components that unifies the marketplace and accelerates the deployment of IoT solutions across a wide variety of industrial and enterprise use cases.
It is scalable, flexible and has a pluggable unified security model that makes secure solutions development easy in any context.
As an open source project hosted by The Linux Foundation, EdgeX is vendor neutral and offers all interested developers or companies the opportunity to collaborate on IoT solutions built using existing connectivity standards combined with their own proprietary innovations.
