IoT Design Manifesto 1.0

About the Iot Design Manifesto


First drafted by a number of design professionals, this manifesto is intended to be a living document that the larger community of peers working within the IoT field can contribute to and improve upon.

The team of initial authors will commit themselves to listen to suggestions and recommendations from the field and produce succeeding versions of the manifesto that reflect the opinions of professionals in the field of IoT.

An advisory board, consisting of thought leaders in the IoT community, is requested to oversee further development of the manifesto.

We welcome you to join the discussion on how to improve this manifesto and work towards a valuable code of conduct for our industry.
