Videos of the Embedded Linux Conference Europe 2012

With the approaching Embedded Linux Conference, to be held February 20-22 in San Francisco, we felt that it was time to finally fight with ffmpeg/libav and get the videos we had taken from the last Embedded Linux Conference Europe talks, encode them and publish them online. So here they are, as what we could consider a late Christmas gift.

There are so many talks that it might be hard to watch everything. So I’d like to share with you my preferred talks from this last ELCE (of course, I haven’t been able to see all talks, but only a third of them, so the following selection is only taken from the talks I have seen) :

  • For sure, the talk I have preferred is the Understanding PREEMPT_RT (The Real-Time Patch) talk from Steven Rostedt (Redhat). In an hour, Steven explained some very interesting internals of PREEMPT_RT, in a very clear way. Definitely a must see, in my opinion.
  • I also enjoyed the ARC Linux: From a Tumbling Toddler to a Graduating Teen talk from Vineet Gupta (Synopsys). While talking about a specific new CPU architecture that probably most of us have never used, Vineet is able to tell a very nice story by bringing you through various issues they had while porting Linux on this new CPU architecture, giving interesting and funny technical details in the process.
  • The talk about Regmap: The Power of Subsystems and Abstractions from Mark Brown (Wolfson Microelectronics) was also very good, in that it clearly explained the need for this new kernel subsystem, how the API works, etc. Definitely the kind of talk I’d like to see about more kernel subsystems: in an hour, you learn the philosophy of the subsystem, why it’s there, how it has been designed to solve the original problems, and the basics of its APIs. It’s often what’s missing from an API documentation: the philosophy behind it. Hour long talks that are capable of conveying this philosophy are therefore highly useful.
  • As usual, David Anders talk, this time about Board bringup: you, me and I2C has been very nice as well. It is a good introduction about electronics related to I2C, it doesn’t go very far for anyone having an existing experience of I2C, but is indeed a very good introduction for those who don’t. I really enjoyed the good explanation about pull-up resistors.
  • Finally, another talk that was great is Samuel Ortiz (Intel) talk about Near Field Communication with Linux. A bit like the Regmap talk, the great benefit of Samuel talk is that in an hour, he went through the different hardware available for NFC in Linux, the architecture of the software stack, the different software components that exist, their strenghts and weaknesses and so on. So without any prior knowledge about NFC, you get at the end of the talk a very good coverage of how this technology is supported by Linux today.

Well, enough with my suggestions, here is the complete list of videos:
