Pengutronix at Live Embedded Event
Now that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone has gotten used to digitalisation and online conferences - it has never been easier to organise a conference and bring together all experts and interested parties for a few hours of intensive exchange of ideas on a certain topic.
Some French companies from the embedded industry had this idea and created the Live Embedded Event.
The Live Embedded Event will take place on Thursday, December 3rd and participation is possible with a free registration.
Our colleague Chris Fiege will contribute to the event and explain the advantages of test automation.

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.
#FlattenTheCurve – Introducing Our Remote Setup
The Corona crisis is a challenge that has hit many people as well as most companies quite unexpectedly. The entire team of Pengutronix wants to thank those that currently ensure our essential supplies, health system and civil infrastructure!
Automated Testing Summit 2019
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."
Summary: Automated Testing Summit 2018
The Automated Testing Summit (ATS) was a co-located event at the ELC-E 2018 in Edinburgh. The summit was organized by Tim Bird and Kevin Hilman and brought together over 35 (embedded) testing experts from different projects and companies.
Chemnitzer Linux-Tage 2023
After the Corona break, the Chemnitzer Linux-Tage will actully take place in real life again, and the Pengutronix team will have eight (!) talks there.
The Pengutronix team is on it's way to FOSDEM in Brussels! We are looking forward to many interesting discussions with developers of different open source software components - be it the Linux kernel, Debian, KiDAC, FreeCAD etc ...
After a longer time with online-only events, the Netdev 0x16, a conference about the technical aspects of Linux Networking, was organized as hybrid event: online and on-site at Lisbon.
Pengutronix at Electronica in Munich
This year Pengutronix again has a Booth at the Electronica trade fair in Munich, Germany. You find us in Hall B4 Booth 104 (map).
rsc's Diary: ELC-E 2022 - Day 4
Friday, the last day of ELC-E 2022, is traditionally the day of the Embedded Linux Closing Game, with Tim Bird reporting about the embedded Linux world (universe?) domination progress and the overall state of the union. Of course, there were again several interesting talks.
rsc's Diary: ELC-E 2022 - Day 3
The Convention Centre is directly at the water front of the Liffey river, just a few walking minutes away from O'Connell Bridge, Temple Bar and Trinity College. Visiting ELC-E is always a good opportunity to visit interesting cities in Europe. However, here is my story of the talks I heard on day 3.
This week, we started our series of YouTube labgrid tutorials. In the next few weeks we will publish more video tutorials showing you labgrid's features and giving you handy tips and tricks.
