The mission of the TANGO Controls software community is to:

Develop an open source toolkit called TANGO Controls for building high performance and high quality distributed control systems for small and large installations. The toolkit design is based on the concept of distributed devices or objects and provides native support for multiple programming languages. The toolkit implements a full set of tools for developing, managing and monitoring small and large control systems. Build a sustainable community dedicated to ensuring that the TANGO Controls toolkit continually improves and remains modern to serve the needs of community for at least the next 20 years. The goal of TANGO Controls is to become a de facto industrial standard for industrial distributed control systems.
