Genuitec, makers of the market leading MyEclipse Integrated Development Environment and Secure Delivery Center technologies, is pleased to offer the Eclipse community its “Internet of Things” PiPlug project.

IoT hobbyists and Eclipse users can take a detailed look into the project’s capabilities on the GitHub site, where Genuitec’s session from the IoT Day at EclipseCon North America 2014, “Pimp your Pi with Eclipse For Your Home TV,” has been made available. This recorded session hosted by Tim Webb and Jed Anderson of Genuitec, will show developers how to utilize PiPlug to create apps for your home TV using PiPlug which lets you connect your Raspberry Pi with an Eclipse RCP UI.

“A tangible shift towards the Internet of Things in the Eclipse Community has given us an opportunity to connect with Eclipse developers and IoT tinkerers on another level,” said Tim Webb, director of innovation and strategy for Genuitec. “Our PiPlug project lets us connect our Eclipse developer base with a really cool front-end that lets them simply create apps for their Raspberry Pis.”

Today, the Eclipse community is rapidly embracing the Internet of Things (IoT) as evident in the open source Eclipse platform’s recent focus on making M2M development simpler. More information on IoT platform initiatives at Eclipse, as well as start up tools for IoT development can be found at:
