The Linux Plumbers conference has been running since quite a few years now, and has established itself as an important event for the Linux community that takes care of the low-level aspects of the Linux system: the kernel of course, but also the related userspace low-level components. It was originally the primary goal of this conference: get the userspace developers of the low-level components and the kernel developers to meet together. Nowadays, Linux Plumbers is organized as both a set of regular talks and a set of half-day mini-conferences.
The 2013 edition will be held from September 18th to September 20th in New Orleans, United States, and will cover a wide range of topics: ACPI, power management, PCI, Android, Graphics, Automotive, Boot and Core OS, File and Storage systems, LLVM, Network virtualization, Scaling, Secure Boot, Virtualization and more.
As part of Free Electrons strong engagement in the community, and continuous effort to ensure its engineers are up-to-date with the latest Linux developments, our engineer Maxime Ripard will attend this conference. For those attending the conference, do not hesitate to meet Maxime, who has an interesting Android experience to share thanks to the Android training course he created at Free Electrons, as well has a nice ARM kernel development experience as the maintainer of the Linux kernel support for the Allwinner ARM processors.
