Thanks for reaching out!
What are the issues that you have faced when trying to implement this code?
According to https://akizukidenshi.com/download/ds/aosong/DHT11.pdf the DHT11 communicates through a serial port, therefore it should be compatible with Edison. Unfortunately, I don't have access to one of this sensors but according to the document I shared above, it shouldn't be that hard to work with this sensor.
I hope this information helps you,
