If you live near Eindhoven in the Netherlands, or if you can easily get there, you may be interested in the seminar organized by Fontys University on June 25, 2010.
I will be in Eindhoven on that week to give our Embedded Linux System Development course. The session is organized by Fontys University and Alten PTS, and Fontys invited me to give a keynote at their seminar on Friday.
The seminar topic is: “Embedded Linux for SMEs” – A guide to professional development:
- Ruud Ermers (Fontys) – A Guide to professional development
- Gerben Blom (Alten PTS) – Android for SMEs
- Michael Opdenacker (Free Electrons) – Embedded Linux Opportunities. Ideas and advise for the Open Minded.
- The grand race, between arm9 controlled vehicles.
- Technical demos
Here is the abstract for my speech:
Michael Opdenacker created Free Electrons in 2004, a company that is best known worldwide for the technical resources it shares with the embedded Linux community. The more this company shares (in the true sense of sharing: giving and receiving), the more successful it gets.
That’s why Michael will come to exchange ideas and experience on building successful embeddded Linux systems and businesses. Just make sure you send him a SIGSTOP signal at the end of his timeslot.
To water your mouth, this talk will show a few things which are possible with embedded Linux and free software building blocks. You will see how you can turn an idea into something that could keep you busy during your whole life if you are not careful.
So, if you are in the Eindhoven area, this could be a nice opportunity to meet. I hope to see you there!
