ELCE 2015 conference videos available

ELC Europe 2015 logoAs often in the recent years, the Linux Foundation has shot videos of most of the talks at the Embedded Linux Conference Europe 2015, in Dublin last October.

These videos are now available on YouTube, and individual links are provided on the elinux.org wiki page that keeps track of presentation materials as well. You can also find them all through the Embedded Linux Conference Europe 2015 playlist on YouTube.

All this is of course a priceless addition to the on-line slides. We hope these talks will incite you to participate to the next editions of the Embedded Linux Conference, like in San Diego in April, or in Berlin in October this year.

In particular, here are the videos from the presentations from Free Electrons engineers.

Alexandre Belloni, Supporting multi-function devices in the Linux kernel

Kernel maintainership: an oral tradition

Tutorial: learning the basics of Buildroot

Our CTO Thomas Petazzoni also gave a keynote (Linux kernel SoC mainlining: Some success factors), which was well attended. Unfortunately, like for some of the other keynotes, no video is available.

ELC 2015 videos available

The videos from the last Embedded Linux Conference that took place late March in San Jose, California, are now available on Youtube! This represents a lot of interesting and useful content about embedded Linux topics.

You’ll find below the videos of the three talks given by Free Electrons engineers at this Embedded Linux Conference.

An Overview of the kernel DMAEngine subsystem, Maxime Ripard

MLC/TLC NAND Support: Challenges for MTD/NAND Subsystem, Boris Brezillon

The Device Tree as a Stable ABI: A Fairy Tale?, Thomas Petazzoni

Videos from Embedded Linux Conference 2014

San Jose, CaliforniaAs the summer is coming to an end, we finally managed to publish the videos we recorded during the last Embedded Linux Conference, held earlier this year in San Jose, California.

This year, the Linux Foundation was only recording the audio of the talks, and we’ve been recording the video only for a few talks. Sorry to all the speakers that won’t be able to see their footage, but we were not able to attend (and record) all of the talks this year. Still, we include below the links to all the talks, slides and their audio recording, in order to cover all of this year’s schedule.

Videos and slides of the Kernel Recipes 2013 conference

Kernel Recipes LogoAs we mentionned earlier on this blog, Free Electrons participated to the second edition of the Kernel Recipes conference in Paris, a two-days conference dedicated to kernel topics.

The videos and slides of the talks in this conference have now been published, see https://kernel-recipes.org/en/2013/conferences/ for the complete list. There is a good number of interesting topics: discussion about kernel development environment by Willy Tarreau, status of Nftables and Netfilter in general by Eric Leblond, a talk explaning how to decipher kernel oopses, a talk about Crosstool-NG from Yann E. Morin, a discussion about Linux Security Modules, a talk about the status of Display support in the kernel by Laurent Pinchart, and several lightning talks.

The talks from Free Electrons were:

Free Electrons really enjoyed this conference, and is looking forward to participating again next year. Thanks a lot to the organizers!

Videos of the Embedded track at FOSDEM 2012

Better late than never: we finally found the time to update our video encoding scripts, and therefore encode and upload the videos we had taken of the embedded track at FOSDEM 2012. Amongst many other interesting talks, you’ll notice two talks given by Free Electrons engineers: one by Maxime Ripard on the IIO subsystem, a kernel subsystem for Industrial I/O devices, and another by Thomas Petazzoni about the usage of the Qt framework for non-graphical applications in embedded Linux systems.

Free Electrons at the Android Builders Summit and the Embedded Linux Conference: one talk and video recording

A good part of the Free Electrons team will be in San Francisco (actually, not in San Francisco, but in the Bay Area) from February, 13th to 17th for the Android Builders Summit and the Embedded Linux Conference.

Android Builders Summit 2012
Android Builders Summit 2012

The Android Builders Summit is the second edition of this conference dedicated to Android system development (and not application development). Compared to last year, the conference has been extended to three parallel tracks during two days. There are many talks about Android customization, Android internals, Android porting, usage of Android in specific markets (medical devices, vehicle infotainment), etc. A lot of useful talks for developers working at the Android system level.

Embedded Linux Conference 2012
Embedded Linux Conference 2012

The Embedded Linux Conference is now a well-established conference. Again for this 2012 edition, there will be three parallel tracks during three days. There will be talks about many, many topics: performance and optimization, power management, build systems, drivers for various types of devices, multimedia, ARM kernel support and much more.

I will be giving a talk about Buildroot: A Nice, Simple and Efficient Embedded Linux Build System on the second day of the conference. The aim of the talk is to give a status on where Buildroot is, three years after a maintainer was chosen and a big clean up work was started. The project has changed a lot compared to its state three years ago, so I thought it would be nice to make a status on where Buildroot and where it is going.

With my colleagues Grégory Clément and Maxime Ripard, we will also record all the talks from the Embedded Linux Conference in order to put the videos online, freely available, after the conference, as we have done for many past conferences.

We hope to meet you in San Francisco for the Android Builders Summit and the Embedded Linux Conference!

Free Electrons at FOSDEM: two talks and video recording

I'm going to FOSDEMAs usual, Free Electrons will again be present at the FOSDEM conference in Brussels, on February, 4th and February 5th. We will of course mostly be attending the Embedded DevRoom, with multiple talks around development in the embedded space.

We will also be giving two talks this year:

  • My colleague Maxime Ripard will be giving a talk about IIO, a new subsystem for I/O devices. In short, IIO is a new subsystem in the kernel to write drivers for devices like Analog-to-Digital converters. Maxime has worked on a driver inside the IIO subsystem for the internal ADCs of the AT91 processors from Atmel, and will base his talk mostly on the experience developing this driver. This talk will take place on Saturday, 12:00 AM to 1:00 PM in the Lameere room.
  • I will be giving a talk on Using Qt for non-graphical applications. It is a talk that has already been given at the Embedded Linux Conference Europe, but the audience of FOSDEM and ELCE being quite different, we have chosen to propose it for FOSDEM as well, and it got accepted. This talk will take place on Sunday, 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM in the Lameere room.

There are also other talks that are worth noting: a SoC power management talk from Jean Pihet who works on OMAP power management support in the Linux kernel, a talk about OpenCores and OpenRISC, a talk about Safe Upgrade of Embedded Systems by Arnout Vandecappelle, who contributes a lot to Buildroot, and also other talks about OpenWRT, Yocto, licensing issues in Android, the EFL libraries, and more.

We will also be carrying our camcorder to video record those talks. We are trying to see with the FOSDEM organization team if it possible to record the audio directly from the room sound systems in order to provide better audio quality in our videos.

If you happen to be at FOSDEM, we’d be very happy to meet you!

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.

Videos of Android Builders Summit 2011

Android LogoJust after the Embedded Linux Conference 2011, the first edition of the Android Builders Conference took place in San Francisco, on April 13th and April 14th 2011. This is the first, and to date, probably the first, conference entirely dedicated to Android low-level components and on how Android systems are built and modified. The number of resources, documentation and conferences on Android application development is already huge, but the amount of system-level information about Android is still relatively limited. This conference comes to fill in this gap, allowing engineers working on Android-based systems to share their experience. With a single track of talks for the first half-day, and two tracks for the second full day, it was a very nice first edition, and the co-location with the Embedded Linux Conference was well-appreciated. Interestingly enough, no talks were given by Google engineers, despite the fact that they are the primary designers and developers of the Android system.

Just as we did for the Embedded Linux Conference a few days ago, we are also publishing below the videos of all talks given during this Android Builders Summit. Of all the presentations, the ones we found the most interesting are certainly:

  • Karim Yaghmour’s talk about « Android Internals » and «Porting Android to new hardware»
  • Aleksander “Sasa” Gargenta’s talk «A walk through the Android stack». Unfortunately, the speaker had way too much contents for the one hour slot, but the content presented was very, very interesting.
  • Mark Brown’s talk «Linux audio for smartphones»
