The Embedded Linux Conference Europe 2015 will take place on October 5-7 in Dublin, Ireland. As usual, the entire Bootlin engineering team will participate to the event, as we believe it is one of the great way for our engineers to remain up-to-date with the latest embedded Linux developments and connect with other embedded Linux and kernel developers.
The conference schedule has been announced recently, and a number of talks given by Bootlin engineers have been accepted:
- Thomas Petazzoni will be teaching a 2 hours long Buildroot tutorial. If you want to get started with Buildroot, definitely a good opportunity! It will take place on Tuesday October 6 from 2 PM to 3:50 PM.
- For the first time, a Bootlin engineer will be giving a keynote at the Embedded Linux Conference: Thomas will be talking about Linux Kernel SoC Support Mainlining Tips (By a Bunch of Other French People) also on Tuesday October 6, at 5:50 PM
- Alexandre Belloni will be giving a talk Supporting Multi-Function Devices in the Linux Kernel: A Tour of the mfd, regmap and syscon APIs on Wednesday OCtober 7 at 10:30 AM.
- Finally, Grégory Clément will be giving a talk about Kernel Maintainership: An Oral Tradition, giving some feedback from his experience as a co-maintainer of the mach-mvebu ARM platform.
We submitted other talks that got rejected, probably since both of them had already been given at the Embedded Linux Conference in California: Maxime Ripard’s talk on dmaengine and Boris Brezillon’s talk on supporting MLC NAND (which we regret since Boris is currently actively working on this topic, so we are expecting to have some useful results by the time of ELCE, compared to his ELC talk which was mostly a presentation of the issues and some proposals to address them). Interested readers can anyway watch those talks and/or read the slides.
In addition to the Embedded Linux Conference Europe itself:
