And since edge computing is also about … computing: which programming language is very well suited to process large computing workloads? Of course, our good old friend C++. Especially at the edge, where available processing power is limited for various reasons (available energy, cooling, space, environment, cost, etc.) and every bit of performance you can squeeze out counts. C++ is well regarded for high performance applications. With C++11, 14 and 17, C++ has also become a very modern programming language. And with a powerful framework like the macchina.io Edge SDK, C++ becomes the perfect programming language for building edge computing applications.
Spoiler: The Cloud will not die. It will continue to do the things it can do best – centralized processing of filtered, pre-processed data, and powering SaaS. But edge computing will shift a significant amount of workloads out of the data center, into edge devices.
