NEWS – @OryngProject a new company / project from Hernando Barragán? @WiringProject

Adafruit 2745

It’s event season (from Maker Faire to the Open Hardware summit (we’re a sponsor!) so that means, it’s time to launch companies and do talks about Arduino-related companies!

Here’s a scoop for the community (maybe).

Hernando Barragán was named Chief Design Architect May 19, 2017, he’s been in Arduino news for the “The Untold History of Arduino” AND being listed in the legal dispute with Federico Musto “Ph.D” the former CEO of Arduino.

There is a new (er, somewhat original?) Arduino with Massimo as the CTO and chairman, but what does that mean for Hernando? WE DO NOT KNOW, HOWEVER – It looks like a new company based around WIRING! – Oryng.

Oryng (@OryngProject.

What is Oryng?
Oryng is an enthusiastic group of passionate individuals and organizations that have been touched by the Wiring Framework, and are working together to curate and expand its usage.

What is the Wiring Framework?
You probably have seen digitalWrite or delay somewhere, which has been popularized by the company called Arduino. The “language” that Arduino uses to program its boards is called the Wiring Framework.

What needs to be done?
Despite the ever-increasing popularity of the Framework, it has never been formally maintained in a way that benefits all that use the Framework. The mission of Oryng is to curate and expand the Framework, and make sure that the changes and additions to it are universally acceptable by both users and the companies that develop technology that utilize the Framework. In addition, there are countless “libraries” that need to be wrangled and maintained. Part of our efforts will be to curate these amazing libraries that people have painstakingly developed.

What can you do to help?
The best way to help right now is to join our mailing list. We want to hear from you what you think needs to happen with the Framework.

It looks like Oryng is a “don’t need to use the Arduino IDE effort.” Kathy the former VP of who (seems is part of Oryng now -and- platformio_org) is doing a talk at the open hardware summit:

Kathy Giori, After the Arduino Buyout: What it Might Mean to Arduino-compatible Devices

We’ll be there, we have questions!


The thing that I can’t figure out (yet) is that Brett Hagman who registered ORYNG.ORG and Twitter profile says “ Lead firmware developer for @WiringProject” – Also owns:

First up, Arduino is trademark that is owned by the Arduino team, second, what the what?
