Bootlin at Embedded Recipes 2023: sponsor, talk and participant

Embedded Recipes 2023The Embedded Recipes conference was started a few years ago, modeled after the popular Kernel Recipes conference. Both events follow an unusual but very interesting format: a single-track conference, with a carefully chosen set of talks/speakers, and a limited number of attendees. These “design choices” give those events a different atmosphere than larger events, whether they are corporate-driven or community-driven.

This year, the Embedded Recipes conference will take place in Paris on September 28-29, with two full days of talks, but also opportunities to connect which are facilitated by the smaller audience and single-track nature of the event. The schedule is now online.

Bootlin has decided to support this year’s edition by being one of the Chef sponsors, contributing financially to the sustainability of this conference. In addition, Bootlin engineer Romain Gantois will give a lightning talk about Snagboot, our recently released open-source and HW agnostic tool to recover and reflash embedded platforms.

Finally, a number of Bootlin engineers will participate to Embedded Recipes: Michael Opdenacker, Paul Kocialkowski, Miquèl Raynal, Théo Lebrun, Romain Gantois and Thomas Petazzoni. Michael will also be present for Kernel Recipes at the beginning of the week.

If you’re interested in meeting with Bootlin folks, do not hesitate to reach out. Remember: we are still hiring, and looking for engineers with embedded Linux and/or Linux kernel experience to join our team. Meeting at this conference would be a great opportunity to start the conversation!

In the mean time, we can only recommend one thing: plan on attending the conference, and register now!

Bootlin at Embedded Recipes and Kernel Recipes 2022, Paris

After 2 editions cancelled due to the pandemic, the famous Embedded Recipes and Kernel Recipes conferences are back: they will take place end of May and beginning of June in Paris!

Bootlin will be present at this event, with several engineers from the team participating:

We look forward to meeting you at this event! If you want to discuss business or career opportunities with Bootlin, do not hesitate to meet Paul, Michael, Kamel or Grégory during Embedded and/or Kernel Recipes!

Back from Kernel Recipes: slides and videos

As we announced previously, we participated to the Embedded Recipes and Kernel Recipes conferences in September in Paris. Three people from Bootlin attended the event: Bootlin CEO Michael Opdenacker, and Bootlin engineers Mylène Josserand and Maxime Ripard.

With its special one track format, an attendance limited to 100 people, excellent choice of talks and nice social events, Kernel Recipes remains a very good conference that we really enjoyed. Embedded Recipes, which was in its first edition this year, followed the same principle, with the same success. We’re looking forward to attending next year editions, and hopefully contributing a few talks as well. See you all at Embedded and Kernel Recipes in 2018!

Bootlin at Embedded and Kernel Recipes 2017

Kernel RecipesEmbedded RecipesThe Kernel Recipes conference has become over the last few years a very interesting conference, with an original single track format and a limited number of attendees, which fosters communication and networking. Held in Paris, France, it is obviously a conference of choice for Bootlin engineers to attend and speak at. We participated to multiple editions, Bootlin engineer Maxime Ripard gave a talk at the 2014 edition, while Thomas Petazzoni gave a talk at the 2013 edition.

In 2017, the organizers decided to complement the 3-day Kernel Recipes conference with a 1-day Embedded Recipes event, and Bootlin will participate by having two engineers attend those events and give talks:

If you’re interested in attending one of those events, make sure to register on time, there are only 100 seats available!
