Questions via a few (tens)


  • first release 0.8.0 in the next weeks
    • waiting for the last CQ (Type-B) to be approved, fallback to Type-A release
    • key features: digital twin framework with well-defined APIs and out-of-the-box connectivity to Eclipse Hono + MQTT brokers
  • next year: road towards 1.0.0 - main features: reported/desired state, type enforcement


  • term "digital twins" mostly seen as marketing buzzword
  • attracting users who don't yet know they would benefit from "digital twin" framework
  • contributions are still unlikely, focus is on finding users


  • Eclipse Hono: ✔
  • Eclipse Mosquitto: ✔
    (connection to MQTT 3.1.1 brokers)
  • Eclipse Vorto:
    on our agenda to integrate in order to validate structure of digital twins: #107, #247
