Industry 4.0 is everywhere. Industry 4.0 is all about doing magical stuff with all the data production hardware produces. Unfortunately accessing this data is not as easy as you would think.
Literally hundreds of Protocols and Standards and only limited open driver support complicate things quite a lot.
Apache PLC4X aims to solve this problem, by providing a single API for accessing industrial hardware using a fast growing number of protocols, providing APIs for an also growing number of languages.
In this talk I want to give you a really quick overview of what PLC4X is, what its current state is and where the project is heading.
