Innovation from Everywhere

At BeagleBoard.org, we are very much about enabling innovation from everywhere, no matter what size their organization. Recent weeks have seen big announcements regarding Microsoft's Azure Certified for IoT program, Canonical's AppEnabledHome initiative and Autodesk's opening of the Ember 3D printer. BeagleBoard.org community members are already making a lot of use of tools from Bug Labs, Apigee, PubNub, Weaved and many more, several of which are also summarized on TI's Cloud Ecosystem Partners page. Many are also using Canonical's Ubuntu Snappy Core. At the same time, we see innovation from individual developers like Elias Bakken revising his Replicape 3D printer controller board, garage startups like OpenROV updating their underwater exploration vehicle and burgeoning ventures like 3D Hubs launching a custom BeagleBone Black portable lab case. It is really a great time for innovation!
