November 20th, 2019 — ThoughtWorks Technology Radar recommends MongooseOS and mDash as preferred open-source microcontroller operating system and embedded firmware development framework.
We are pleased to announce that ThoughtWorks Technology Radar volume 21 is recommending MongooseOS and mDash as preferred open-source microcontroller operating system and embedded firmware development framework for Espressif, STM, Texas Instruments.
ThoughtWorks Technology Radar is a guide to technology frontiers that sets out the changes that are currently interesting in software development - things in motion that developers should pay attention to and consider using in their projects. It reflects the opinion of senior technologists and is based on the day-to-day work and experiences.
In ThoughtWorks Technology Radar own words: "Mongoose OS remains one of our preferred open-source microcontroller operating systems and embedded firmware development frameworks. It's worth noting that Mongoose OS fills a noticeable gap for embedded software developers: the gap between Arduino firmware suitable for prototyping and bare-metal microcontrollers' native SDKs. Our teams have successfully used Cesanta's new end-to-end device management platform, mDash, for small-scale greenfield hardware projects. Major Internet of Things (IoT) cloud platform providers today support the Mongoose OS development framework for their device management, connectivity, and over-the-air (OTA) firmware upgrades. Since we last reported on Mongoose OS, the number of supported boards and microcontrollers has grown to include STM, Texas Instruments and Espressif. We continue to enjoy its seamless support for OTA updates and its built-in security at the individual device level."
