In the last five years, we have seen an explosion of open source in the IoT and embedded industry driven by a shift towards edge processing. Projects like Zephyr have grown from incubation to mainstream, addressing a growing need for common software infrastructure in embedded microcontroller applications that operate on the edge. In this talk we will take a look back at the expansion of open source in this industry in recent years and explore some insights into where it will go in the future.
