Bootlin at the Embedded Linux Conference 2020

Bootlin has been a participant at the Embedded Linux Conference for many years, and despite the special conditions this year, we will again be participating to this online event, from June 29 to July 1.

More specifically:

  • Bootlin engineer Alexandre Belloni and Bootlin’s audio expert will give a talk ASoC: supporting Audio on an Embedded Board, which presents how audio complex in embedded devices are typically supported by the Linux kernel ALSA System-on-Chip framework. This talk takes place on June 29 at 2:05 PM UTC-5.
  • Bootlin engineer and CTO Thomas Petazzoni will give his usual Buildroot: what’s new ? talk, giving an update on the latest developments and improvements of the Buildroot project. This talk takes place on July 1 at 11:15 AM UTC-5.
  • The vast majority of the Bootlin engineering team will be attending many of talks proposed during the event. Bootlin has been offering to all its engineers the participation to two conferences a year: with the Embedded Linux Conference going virtual, we’ve simply allowed all our engineers to participate, with no restriction. This is part of Bootlin’s policy to ensure our engineers stay as up to date as possible with embedded Linux technologies.
  • Bootlin CTO Thomas Petazzoni was once again part of the program committee for this edition of the Embedded Linux Conference, as part of this committee he reviewed and selected the different talks that were submitted.

We are interested in seeing how this virtual version of the Embedded Linux Conference will compare to the traditional physical event. For many old timers to these conferences, the most useful part of a conference is the hallway track and all the side discussions, meetings and dinners with members of the embedded Linux community, and a virtual version makes such interactions more challenging.

In any case, we hope you’ll enjoy the conference! Don’t hesitate to join us in the Q&A session after our talks, or on the 2-track-embedded-linux room of the Slack workspace set up for the event by the Linux Foundation.
