The Libre Software Meeting (Rencontres Mondiales du Logiciel Libre in French) is a community-driven event that takes place every year in France, and covers a wide range of topics in the free and open source software domain. Each year, an Embedded systems and free hardware topic is proposed, which in 2010 was lead by Florian Fainelli, Pierre Ficheux and myself.
While most of the talks took place in French, a few talks were given in English and as we recoded videos from those talks, we thought it’d be a good idea to highlight them to the english readers of our blog. We found it especially important since amongst those videos, there are two particularly interesting presentations from Sarah Sharp, a kernel developer from Intel, about USB3 and its support in Linux. As usual, all our videos are published under the Creative Commons Attribution – ShareAlike Licence version 3.0 license.
