If you are just learning about EdgeX Foundry and have been directed to this Wiki site, there are some additional resources you might find helpful.
General Web Site
- EdgeX Foundry Web Site : provides general information about the project, membership (and how to become a members), news/announcements, and governance.
- EdgeX Foundry Slack Site: place to ask a question of the EdgeX developers and community. You will also find project related announcements (such as upcoming meeting reminders, release schedule, etc.) there too. There are many channels to allow you to get your question to the right audience. If you are unsure of what channel to post your question to, post it to the #general channel and people will help you get it directed into the proper channel on response. FYI - the project used to use Rocket Chat as its quick chat communication channel. Rocket Chat is now considered archived, but conversations found Rocket Chat may be able to answer a question you have.
- EdgeX Foundry Technical Documentation: This website contains the technical documentation (architecture, micro service descriptions, API documents, getting started guides, examples, and more).
- Latest documentation (work in progress): This website is the same documentation as above, but includes the latest updates and work in progress toward the next release. It will often contain materials that may or may not be found in the current release - so use this documentation with some caution. It may also contain updates and improvements to the existing documentation.
In addition to the above, you can post a question to the EdgeX Foundry email reflectors (email forums). Search the email archive and sign up for email here: EdgeX Email Subgroups. You will find there are many emails lists (subgroups) so you may want to research your question in the archives to get a sense of which group is more likely to provide the answer to your question.
Attend Technical Meetings
Our EdgeX technical and marketing working groups meet, typically, once a week. These meetings are held by conference call and are open to the public. In these working group meetings, the technical work of the project is organized, design and architecture topics are discussed and decided upon, and marketing efforts are orchestrated. Find out how to sign up for any of our meetings here: Meeting Calendar and Sign up
