CELF technical mini-conference welcomes embedded Linux hackers

Nov 17, 2005 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 1 views

The Consumer Electronics Linux Forum (CELF) has scheduled a technical mini-conference for Nov. 30 in San Jose, Calif. The one-day conference will be open to anyone wishing to attend, and will feature presentations on a variety of technical topics, followed by BOF (birds-of-a-feather) sessions.

Most presentation time slots remain open. Event coordinator Tim Bird of Sony has outlined possible session ideas that include:

  • How to find moronic, time-wasting functions in the kernel
  • Report of recent developments in embedded Linux
  • Discussion of Linux size issues (what to do next in size with regard to linux-tiny, squash-fs, small libc, automated size regression test, etc.)
  • Introduction to the CELF test lab — how to prepare a board to interact with the lab

Additional details will be published as they emerge on a page at CELF's developer WIKI, here.'s roving reporter snapped this photo at the CELF technical conference held in San Jose, Calif. last January:
