We present an overview of the Databox application devel- opment environment or SDK as a means of enabling trusted IoT app development at the network edge. The Databox platform is a dedicated domestic platform that stores IoT, mobile and cloud data and executes local data processing by third party apps to provide end-user control over data flow. Key challenges for building apps in edge environments concern (i) the complexity of IoT devices and user requirements, and (ii) supporting privacy preserving features that meet new data protec- tion regulations. We examine how the Databox SDK can ease the burden of regulatory compliance and be used to sensitize developers to privacy related issues in the very course of building apps.
