The Libre Software Meeting is a community-driven free software event that exists since 2000, composed of talks and workshops. Its 2012 edition will take place from July 7th to July 12th in Geneva, Switzerland.
In the context of this conference, I was responsible with Florian Fainelli from the OpenWRT project to organize the Embedded systems and open hardware track. This track will offer an interesting selection of talks related to embedded topics, concentrated between July 9th and July 11th:
- A look through the Android stack, Maxime Ripard, Free Electrons
- OsciPrime – An Open Source Android Oscilloscope, Manuel Di Cerbo, Andreas Rudolf, Nexus-Computing Switzerland
- Make a free camera fly with free hardware, Éric Boudrand. It will be the only talk of the track that will take place in French. The rest of the track contents will be in English.
