XDK2MAM vision, roadmap and announcements

This has been a great year for XDK2MAM. We developed some open source code, enabling to decentralize Bosch XDK110 sensors data through the Tangle and traveled as much as we could to conduct workshops in Argentina, Brazil and Venezuela.
We are really thankful with the way the IOTA Foundation and Bosch Connectivity got interested in our project and supported us in different ways. Now that XDK2MAM is funded by the IOTA Ecosystem, we will be dedicated in a much more compromised way to deliver the project milestones and, if possible, go even further.
Yes, our roadmap is about the Bosch XDK110-Tangle integration, but there are too many devices out there and we are confident that we will be able to start working on solutions to integrate some of them as well. As we develop our XDK110 based roadmap, we aim to slowly build an open source Hub that will allow the community to start connecting devices to the Tangle.
Daniel Trauth is now XDK2MAM Central Europe Representative
XDK2MAM team is based in Argentina. Despite the many ways to deal with the distances we have today, this can complicate the dialog and communications with key actors related to our project scope (ie. IF or Bosch Connectivity). Daniel’s vast experience on the field we will be working on, his continuous assistance when dealing with this actors and the validation provided by testing our code with the great IILA engineers made him our dreamed candidate for this position. We are honored to have him as our CE Representative. He is now the face of XDK2MAM over there and will be in charge of linking the project with regional individual/companies that could be interested on what we do.
We aim to provide quality open source code for the community to integrate the Bosch XDK110 with IOTA. As we see it, this is not only about writing great code, but also about creating a vast amount of guides and videotutorials to make the process as easy as possible. So the philosophy is: every solution we build will come with a step by step guide and a videotutorial. You chose what’s best for you.
While you can find a detailed presentation of our project milestones at the EDF form uploaded to the Transparency website, here is a less formal narrative about what we will be doing the next 12 months.
Phase 1: the roots
Create open source code to enable XDK-Tangle interaction using all the available methods: HTTP, HTTP+SD, MQTT, BLE and UDP. This first phase is about setting the roots and provide functionality that covers all of the XDK110 features.
