Embedded Linux Conference Europe 2011 videos

One week after the end of the Embedded Linux Conference Europe 2011, we are pleased to release the videos of all talks that took place during this event. We would like to thank the Linux Foundation for allowing us to record those talks and to share freely the resulting videos on-line, and also thank the Clarion Congress Hotel technical staff for helping us with technical details related to video recording.

Below, you’ll find 51 videos, in both a 1920×1080 HD format and a reduced 800×450 format. In total, it represents 28 GB of video, for a duration of 2214 minutes, that is more of 36 hours of video. We hope that you will enjoy those videos and that these will be useful to those who couldn’t attend the conference.

Embedded Linux training: switch to the IGEPv2 board

Since early 2009, our training sessions have been using the USB-A9263 board from Calao Systems as the hardware platform for the practical labs. However, this AT91-based platform was getting older, and we therefore started the process of switching our training sessions to a new hardware platform, the IGEPv2 board from ISEE.

IGEPv2 board
IGEPv2 board

The IGEPv2 platform is very similar to the popular BeagleBoard and BeagleBoard-XM platforms, and has the following technical characteristics :

  • TI DM3730, which is the latest OMAP3 processor from Texas Instruments, clocked at 1 Ghz, and including a DSP for signal processing, an IVA block for audio/video decoding and the PowerVR SGX for 3D/OpenGL. This processor offers far more possibilities than the AT91 one, especially for multimedia applications.
  • 512 MB of RAM and 512 MB of OneNAND flash.
  • Integrated Ethernet connector, Wifi and Bluetooth connectivity.
  • One USB OTG port and one USB host port.
  • A microSD connector.
  • A DVI-D connector (HDMI), stereo input and ouput
  • RS232 connector
  • Multiple expansion ports to access LCD, camera, I2C, SPI, JTAG, etc. signals

Compared to the BeagleBoard-XM, this board has the following advantages:

  • it has a OneNAND Flash device, which allows us to demonstrate and practice the usage of MTD and Linux flash-specific filesystems such as JFFS2 and UBIFS in our training sessions. Even though block-based storage such as SD and eMMC is more and more popular in consumer-electronic devices, usage of raw NAND flash is still very common in industrial applications, and we therefore wanted to keep presenting those devices and their usage in embedded Linux
  • ISEE, the company manufacturing the IGEPv2, is located in Spain, which makes it easier for us to regularly order boards from them, since we are also located in Europe
  • the board provides Bluetooth and Wifi connectivity, which is nice

We have already given two sessions of our Embedded Linux system development training with the IGEPv2, and all our future sessions of this training will use this hardware platform, so the participants will benefit from a more modern platform, with far more capabilities than our previous AT91-based training hardware. This is also the board we are now giving to the participants to our public training sessions, so those participants come back home with a very nice and powerful platform which allows countless experiments around embedded Linux. Note that we also intend to port our Embedded Linux kernel and driver development training session to the IGEPv2 platform in the near future.

ELC 2011 videos

The Embedded Linux Conference 2011 took place between April, 11th and April, 13th in its now usual place, the Kabuki hotel in San Francisco, California. It was the first edition organized since the merge of the CE Linux Forum into the Linux Foundation. During three days, three parallel tracks of talks and BoFs about technical topics around embedded Linux : kernel support, power management, build systems, file systems, real-time, and more.

As usual, part of the Bootlin team was at this Embedded Linux Conference, in order to keep up with the latest developments from the embedded Linux community. Gregory Clement (left on the picture), Maxime Ripard (right on the picture) and myself (center on the picture) were present, and we recorded all talks of the conference. And just a little bit more than one month later, we are ready to announce that all videos are now available online, in 1080p high-definition, and in a lower 450p resolution, encoded with the new VP8 codec.

Amongst all the conferences below, each of us have selected the three ones we thought were the most interesting ones (note that the top three for each us is necessarily composed of distinct talks, as none of us have seen the same talks since we had to record talks from three different sessions in parallel) :

  • For Gregory Clement, the top three is: Yoshiya Hirase talk about Faster Resume For More Energy Savings on MeeGo, Arnd Bergmann talk about Optimizations For Cheap Flash Media (which follows Arnd article on the same topic in LWN) and a set of three related talks about the video infrastructure in the Linux kernel, that Gregory recommends to watch in this order: Media Controller Framework (MCF) For OMAP2+ Display Subsystem (Sumit Semwal), Video4linux: Progress, New videobuf2 Framework and the Future (Hans Verkuil) and Bringing up HDMI Display for OMAP4 Panda Board – Design, Challenges and Lessons Learned (Mythri pk).
  • For Maxime Ripard, the top three is: John Stultz talk about Android for servers, Mike Anderson talks about ARM NEON and GPU programming, Wolfram Sang talk about Helping the process
  • For myself, the top three is: Jesse Barker talks about the ARM Graphics ecosystem which gives a nice overview of the state of this topic, Hai Shalom talk about PCD (which is an original and interesting replacement for init), Dave Stewart talk about The Yocto Project and its Application Development Toolkit (because it gives details on how Yocto is supposed to be used for application development, a topic I’m interested in as a Buildroot developer)

It is also worth noting that this Embedded Linux Conference was co-located with the first edition of the Android Builders Summit, for which we will soon publish videos as well. The next embedded Linux conference will take place in Europe, in Prague from October 26th to 28th, co-located with the first edition of LinuxCon Europe and just after the Kernel Summit. Prague will really be full of Linux developers during this end of October, it’s time to book this week on your agenda as well !

  • And many other talks on various topics: LLVM, Clang and Embedded Linux Systems, Linaro: A Year of Change, Control, Recover and Debug Your Embedded Product with PCD, Developer’s Diary: Helping the Process, High-Level Web Interface to Low-Level Linux I/O on the Beagleboard, Linaro Automated Validation on ARM, Crowd Sourcing and Protecting the Open Source Community, Android for Servers?, Hot Multi-OS Switch: How to run Ubuntu, ChromiumOS, Android at the Same Time on an Embedded Device.

This edition will be the first one organized since the merge between the CE Linux Forum into the Linux Foundation, and will therefore be a great opportunity to see if this merge had any impact on the technical quality of the conference.

My colleagues Maxime Ripard (who joined Bootlin just a week ago) and Gregory Clement as well as myself will be present at the Embedded Linux Conference and the Android Builders Summit, and we will as usual record all talks of both of these conferences and will put them online, as we have done recently for the talks that took place during the Embedded Linux Conference Europe 2010 in Cambridge. Do not hesitate to meet us in San Francisco!

Videos from FOSDEM 2010

Peter Korsgaard presenting Buildroot in the Cross build systems workshop at FOSDEM 2010

Like every year, the Free and Open Source Developer European Meeting took place early February in Brussels, and Thomas Petazzoni, from Bootlin, attended and recorded a few talks from the embedded session. However, contrary to previous years, I haven’t been able to record all talks from the embedded session, since I attended talks from other sessions which were already being recorded by others.

We also attended talks from the X.org and Coreboot developer roooms : videos for the X.org developer room can be found at http://video.fosdem.org/2010/devrooms/xorg/ and videos for the Coreboot developer room can be found at http://video.fosdem.org/2010/devrooms/coreboot/.

ELC 2010 videos

Videos from the Embedded Linux Conference in San Francisco, April 12-14, 2010.

The 2010 edition of the Embedded Linux Conference was once again a very interesting event. For embedded Linux developers, the Embedded Linux Conference is a perfect place to learn about new technologies, profit from the experience of other developers, and to meet key software developers.

For people who couldn’t attend this conference, and for single core people who didn’t manage to attend two or three talks at the same time, here are the videos that we managed to shoot. As usual, the videos are released with a Creative Commons Attribution – ShareAlike 3.0 license.

We hope it makes you feel like joining the next edition of the conference. If you can’t wait, what about going to ELC Europe in Cambridge (UK) in late October? It has a very interesting program too. Of course, the sessions will also be recorded. I hope to see you there!

ELC Europe 2010 sessions announced

List of sessions and speakers at ELC Europe in Cambridge, UK

Cambridge, UKBeing a member of the organization committee of the Embedded Linux Conference Europe, I get access to fresh news about this yearly conference. The call for presentations is now over and we have just announced the list of sessions.

Note that this list is not the final one yet. Some speakers haven’t confirmed their participation or haven’t sent their biographies yet. There are also two or three speakers added at the last minute who are not listed yet.

The conference will happen in Cambridge, UK, on October 27-28, 2010. Keep an eye on the website (or on our blog). Registration should open in a few days from now, and all practical details will be given then.

See also the agenda of the GStreamer conference which will happen at the same location on the day before.

Location of Embedded Linux Conference Europe 2010 announced

Cambridge, UKWhile the American Embedded Linux Conference always takes place in the San Francisco area in California, the European Embedded Linux Conference Europe travels each year in a different country across Europe: it took place in Austria in 2007, in the Netherlands in 2008 and in France in 2009. The location for the 2010 edition of ELCE has been announced recently: it will take place on October 27th and 28th in Cambridge, United Kingdom. As usual there will be many talks, Bird-of-a-Feather sessions, technical demonstrations and more. If you’re an embedded Linux developer in Europe, you should definitely ask your employer to send you to this conference!

Presentations on the following topics are encouraged: audio, video, and graphics systems for embedded products, security, system size, boot-up time, meeting real-time constraints, power management, streaming media, flash memory devices and filesystems, technologies related to cell phones, digital set top boxes, handheld devices, or other CE products, development tools for embedded users, use of Linux in actual products, practical experience and war stories, standards for CE products. The proposal must be received by June, 30th. My colleague Michael Opdenacker, founder of Bootlin, is a member of the program committee.

On the day before, note that there will also be an interesting event: GStreamer Conference 2010. As GStreamer is a key component of today’s multimedia systems based on embedded Linux. Staying in Cambridge for three days instead of two could then make a lot of sense.
