Pengutronix auf dem Live Embedded Event

Conference, Event, Testing

Jetzt, wo sich durch die COVID-19-Pandemie alle an die Digitalisierung und Online-Konferenzen gewöhnt haben, war es noch nie so einfach eine Konferenz zu organisieren und alle Experten und Interessierten aus einem Bereich für wenige Stunden des intensiven Ideenaustauschs zusammen zu holen.

Das haben sich auch einige französiche Firmen aus der Embedded Branche gedacht und das Live Embedded Event ins Leben gerufen.

Das Live Embedded Event findet am Donnerstag den 03. Dezember statt und eine Teilnahme ist mit einer kostenfreien Registrierung möglich.

Zu dem Event trägt unser Kollege Chris Fiege bei und erläutert die Vorteile der Testautomatisierung.

How Embedded Developers work from home, using labgrid (Chris Fiege)

How Embedded Developers work from home, using labgrid

Embedded development is complex enough. By automating repetitive parts during development and employing testing, a lot of time can be saved and human errors avoided.

Additionally with an ongoing global pandemic, working from the safety of your home is a good idea. But since embedded development is usually a team effort, scarce hardware must often be shared and  can't be taken home.

At first the presenter takes a closer look at what is actually needed to fully remote-control an Embedded Linux Device: What are the typical interfaces that need to be covered? What remote-control hardware is commercially available?

Next the presenter will focus on the labgrid framework. Labgrid is an embedded board control python library with a focus on testing, development and general automation. After a short overview of labgrid's architecture, the presenter will show how it can be used to remote-control many  Embedded Devices in a (distributed) lab infrastructure and which steps are needed to get labgrid running in your lab.

The presentation will conclude with a short demo of how interactive development with labgrid looks like and how tests are implemented using pytest.

Die Corona-Krise hat uns alle, sowohl als Privatpersonen als auch als Firmen, plötzlich ziemlich hart getroffen und stellt unsere gesamte Gesellschaft vor neue Herausforderungen. Wir als Pengutronix möchten uns bei denjenigen bedanken, die in systemkritischen Berufen arbeiten und unsere alltägliche Versorgung sicherstellen.


Automated Testing Summit 2019

Chris Fiege, Jan Lübbe | | Event

Jan, Rouven and Chris attended the Automated Testing Summit 2019 at the ELC-E in Lyon. The Summit began with Lightning Tasks on the progress in some projects. One highlight was Kevin Hilman's talk: "the bugs are too fast - and why we can't catch them."

Auch der Embedded Software Engineering Kongress findet dieses Jahr online statt und wir möchten die Chance nutzen, diesen als Event-Partner zu unterstützen, mit Leuten ins Gespräch zu kommen und gleichzeitig ein paar interessanten Vorträgen zu lauschen.


ELCE 2020 - Recommended Talks

Chris Fiege | | conference, elce, event

The Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELCE) is the one biggest meetup of Embedded Linux developers in Europe. As usual Pengutronix has attended this conference - but this year from the warmth of our homes.

Das Programm der diesjährigen Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELCE) wurde in den letzten Tagen veröffentlicht. Wie auch in den letzten Jahren beteiligt sich Pengutronix auch dieses Mal mit Vorträgen zu aktuellen Themen.


ELC-NA 2020 - A Virtual Experience

Enrico Jörns, Jan Lübbe | | Event

In 2020, things tend to be a bit different from what we had before. This is also true for this year's Embedded Linux Conference in North America. The need for keeping physical distance required the Linux Foundation to switch form a real conference to a fully virtual one.


Pengutronix at Embedded World 2020

Yesterday, Embedded World started, in normal times one of the largest trade shows for embedded development in Europe. While many exhibitors (and thus maybe also lots of visitors) have canceled their presence due to the coronavirus, we present our booth and our demo show cases as usual.


FOSDEM 2020 – Recommended Talks

Enrico Jörns, Chris Fiege | | Event

FOSDEM is one of the biggest Open Source community meetings in Europe and takes place in Brussels at the Université Libre de Bruxelles every year in February. For Pengutronix this is always a good chance to meet developers, discuss current topics and enjoy some Belgian beer and food. This year we attended FOSDEM with 15 colleagues. Here are some talks our colleagues recommend you to see.


USB-SD-Mux: Automated SD-Card Juggler

Once the bootloader on your embedded device is up and running the development of kernel and userland in PTXdist-based BSPs is usually based on booting from network. Thus there is no need for the developer to write the boot media with a new image.
