Like every year for more than 10 years, Bootlin engineers will participate to the next Embedded Linux Conference, which takes place in Portland on March 12-14. Of course, it will be our first ELC with our new company name! In total, eight engineers from Bootlin will participate to the event. Maxime Chevallier, who joined Bootlin last Monday, will be attending the conference, his first one with a Bootlin hat (but Maxime has already been a speaker at the last Embedded Linux Conference Europe).
We will also be giving a number of talks, tutorials or moderating Bird of a Feather sessions:
- Miquèl Raynal will give a talk titled Drive your NAND with Linux, sharing his experience rewriting the NAND controller driver for Marvell platforms, significantly improving the NAND core subsystem along the way, making it more flexible to support advanced NAND controllers.
- Mylène Josserand and Quentin Schulz will give a talk titled Secure boot from A to Z, giving their feedback on a project where they have set up a complete secure boot solution on an NXP/Freescale i.MX6 platform.
- Boris Brezillon will talk about I + I2C = I3C: What’s in this additional I?, presenting the new MIPI I3C bus, and the associated I3C subsystem he submitted for inclusion in the Linux kernel to support this bus.
- In the context of the Embedded Apprentice Linux Engineer initiative, Michael Opdenacker will give a tutorial providing an Introduction to Linux Kernel Driver Programming: i2c drivers
- Continuing a long-standing tradition, Michael Opdenacker will moderate a BoF on Embedded Linux Size, an area that has seen interesting developments over the last year.
- Also in the context of the Embedded Apprentice Linux Engineer initiative, Thomas Petazzoni will give a tutorial on Getting started with Buildroot
- Alexandre Belloni, at the very end of the event, will give a talk titled Ethernet switch support in the Linux kernel, in which he will share his experience using the Linux kernel switchdev subsystem to support an Ethernet switch found in some Microsemi MIPS processors.
We’re really happy to again meet the embedded Linux open-source community at this event! It is worth mentioning that following this event, Bootlin CTO Thomas Petazzoni will be in the Silicon Valley on March 15-16, available for business meetings: do not hesitate to contact us if you’re interested.
