Like every year for about 10 years, the entire Free Electrons engineering team will participate to the next Embedded Linux Conference, taking place on April 4-6 in San Diego, California. For us, participating to such conferences is very important, as it allows to remain up to date with the latest developments in the embedded Linux world, create contacts with other members of the embedded Linux community, and meet the community members we already know and work with on a daily basis via the mailing lists or IRC.
Over the years, our engineering team has grown, and with the arrival of two more engineers on March 14, our engineering team now gathers 9 persons, all of whom are going to participate to the Embedded Linux Conference.
As usual, in addition to attending, we also proposed a number of talks, and some of them have been accepted and are visible in the conference schedule:
- Buildroot vs. OpenEmbedded/Yocto: A Four Hands Discussion, Alexandre Belloni & Thomas Petazzoni
- Using DT Overlays to Support the C.H.I.P.’s Capes, Antoine Tenart
- Modernizing the NAND framework: The Big Picture, Boris Brezillon
- Bringing Display and 3D to the C.H.I.P Computer, Maxime Ripard
- Autotools: A Demystification Tutorial, Thomas Petazzoni
As usual, our talks are centered around our areas of expertise: hardware support in the Linux kernel, especially for ARM platforms, and build system related topics (Buildroot, Yocto, autotools).
We are looking forward to attending this event, and see many other talks from various speakers: the proposed schedule contains a wide range of topics, many of which look really interesting!
