Last week, we wrapped up the MQTT Essential Series. We had a lot of fun writing the series and your feedback back was extremely positive. We had the impression that the MQTT Essentials really resonated with our readers. To confirm our feeling, we asked you to take part in a short survey to tell us what you thought about the Essentials series and let us know what future topics would be of the most interest.

Here are the results:

First of all, we are very happy that 87% of all participants think that the MQTT Essentials series is AWESOME :)

MQTT Essentials Feedback

That is great news for us! The survey shows us that we are on the right track and increases our motivation to keep producing high quality content about MQTT.

The second interesting insight we gained from the survey is that the topic you are most interested in is MQTT security. This didn’t really surprise us, it highlights the growing demand for secure communication for all kinds of sensitive data.

HiveMQ Blog: next topics

In response to your feedback, we are launching a new series: MQTT Security Essentials.

If you are interested in the MQTT security, sign up for our newsletter. We’ll notify you as soon as each new post is available. If you prefer RSS, you can subscribe to our RSS feed.

The goal of the survey was to find out which topic our readers are most interested in and we will get straight to work on the security series. The first post is next week.

We were surprised that there is so much interest in MQTT client libraries and concrete MQTT use cases. We already had plans to write about these topics, but didn’t anticipate that the interest in them would surpass scaling MQTT. We will focus on both of these topics as soon as we finish the Security Essentials.

Thanks again to everyone who participated in the survey! You are awesome ☺! We hope to deliver more high-quality content on topics that are really interesting to you and supply plenty of usable information.

Have a great week, HiveMQ Team
