As in the previous years a bunch of Pengutronix developers attended the FOSDEM Open Source conference in Brussels to stay up-to-date with the latest developments in the context of embedded Linux, graphics and media, electronics and lots of other interesting topics.
Before the ELC-E conference starts in Prague, Berlin hosts the All Systems Go conference, the successor of the systemd conference. In times of increasing IT security incidents with IoT devices, updating such systems in a secure and reliable way becomes more and more important. Michael Olbrich's talk outlines the challenges and possible solutions for a robust update process.
The autumn conference highlight is the Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELC-E), which takes place in Prague this year. The Pengutronix team will be present with four talks and two demo points / showcases, presenting current open source projects (RAUC, labgrid, etnaviv).
While the technical side of building embedded Linux systems is mostly solved, running such systems connected to the internet over a long time has its own challenges. At the Embedded Recipes Conference in Paris, Marc Kleine-Budde will talk about establishing a sustinable workflow for this usecase tomorrow (2017-09-26).
