AllSeenAlliance is the 11th Linux Foundation Collaborative Project, aiming to ease communication between various devices and democratize the IOT. The AllJoyn SDK suite by AllSeen Alliance allows devices within close proximity to find and communicate with one another using peer to peer networks. The SDK comes with various API language bindings to comply with a diverse array of operating systems and chipsets. The SDK is written in C & C++ for compatibility with various use cases. Supported operating systems include: Android, Thin Client, iOS and OS/X, Linux, Unity, and Windows 7.
Announcing a new partnership between iControl, an extensible software platform for the connected home, and EcoFactor, an energy efficiency data company, Jim Johnson of iControl Networks said: “We both view integrations with APIs as the building blocks for innovation in the connected home market and the Internet of Things.”
Samsung isn't making it easy for developers. The company may have released a handful of SDKs for its latest devices, but Samsung's non-committal approach to its Tizen platform is probably going to cost it developer support.
