This presentation will start with RIOT's perspective on the IoT, focusing on CPU- and memory-constrained hardware communicating with low-power radios. In this context, similarly to the rest of the Internet, a community-driven, free and open source operating system such as RIOT is key to software evolution, scalability and robustness. After giving an overview to RIOT's overall architecture and its modular building blocks, the speaker will describe in more detail selected design decisions concerning RIOT's kernel, hardware abstraction and network stack. Furthermore, the talk will overview the development and organizational processes put in place to help streamline the efforts of RIOT's heterogeneous community. The presentation will end with an outlook on upcoming features in RIOT's next releases and longer-term vision.
