At September 12-15 the first conference focusing exclusively on open source firmware took place in Erlangen, Germany - the OSFC 2018. The mission of this conference is to provide an appropriate platform to bring together as many Open Source projects, hardware manufacturers and developers as possible, in order to collaborate, share knowledge and push the firmware development in an Open Source manner.
This year, a team from Pengutronix attended FrOSCon in St. Augustin for the first time. We took the opportunity to shake hands, talk about our latest developments and meet hackers interested in working with embedded Linux.
In the first talk today, Michael Tretter reports about the current state of Open Source Graphics for Embedded Systems. For regular observers, it's probably not surprising that the focus will be on i.MX6, Etnaviv and the IPU.
At the ELC Europe 2016 in Berlin our colleagues Jan Lübbe and Marc Kleine-Budde are talking about two interesting and important presentations about Kernel longterm maintenance strategies and verified boot.
