A good part of the Free Electrons team will be in San Francisco (actually, not in San Francisco, but in the Bay Area) from February, 13th to 17th for the Android Builders Summit and the Embedded Linux Conference.
The Android Builders Summit is the second edition of this conference dedicated to Android system development (and not application development). Compared to last year, the conference has been extended to three parallel tracks during two days, as can be seen in the schedule. There are many talks about Android customization, Android internals, Android porting, usage of Android in specific markets (medical devices, vehicle infotainment), etc. A lot of useful talks for developers working at the Android system level.
The Embedded Linux Conference is now a well-established conference. Again for this 2012 edition, there will be three parallel tracks during three days. As the schedule shows, there will be talks about many, many topics: performance and optimization, power management, build systems, drivers for various types of devices, multimedia, ARM kernel support and much more.
I will be giving a talk about Buildroot: A Nice, Simple and Efficient Embedded Linux Build System on the second day of the conference. The aim of the talk is to give a status on where Buildroot is, three years after a maintainer was choosen and a big clean up work was started. The project has changed a lot compared to its state three years ago, so I thought it would be nice to make a status on where Buildroot and where it is going.
With my colleagues Grégory Clément and Maxime Ripard, we will also record all the talks from the Embedded Linux Conference in order to put the videos online, freely available, after the conference, as we have done for many past conferences.
We hope to meet you in San Francisco for the Android Builders Summit and the Embedded Linux Conference!
