|Fall 2019 Issue
We are excited to announce the release of the Fall 2019 issue of Haystack Connections magazine. This 6th issue of Haystack Connections echoes the central theme of the Haystack Connect 2019 conference – collaboration. Bringing a true, open-source development effort to the buildings industry which has historically been dominated by prescribed standards and proprietary technology, has been both rewarding and challenging. You can find this issue of the magazine here.
The central focus of Haystack is to enable software developers, system
integrators, building owners and operators to easily use the data
produced by the equipment, devices and sensors that make up the built
environment. At its heart, therefore, Haystack is a software effort.
When we look to the world of software, it's undeniable that open source
movements have changed the landscape, solving problems no single
manufacturer or supplier could have addressed on their own. There are
some things in life, science and technology that “take a village” to
address and Project Haystack is one of those. As an open source effort
the results are directly correlated to the contributions and
participation of the community.
The energy of the community was on full display in May, at the fourth biennial Haystack Connect Conference, which was a tremendous success and saw the community continue to grow with attendees from around the world, new working groups and adoption by more and more suppliers and service providers.
We see adoption across the globe growing as more and more people understand the urgent need to address the challenge of making device data easier to work with. On that front, thanks to the efforts of Chris Irwin, Executive Envoy Europe for Project Haystack, we conducted the first-ever European Project Haystack event in October in London.
Industry understanding of the need for data interoperability has grown tremendously and adoption of Project Haystack is at an all time high. There could not be a better time to get involved in this important work.
