Embedded developers to meet up in “Linux Garage”

Mar 25, 2008 — by Eric Brown — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 6 views

This August's LinuxWorld Conference & Expo will host a new attraction for embedded Linux developers called the Linux Garage. IDG World Expo Corp is now accepting submissions for free exhibit space in the demonstration area, showcasing “the latest and coolest gadgets based on… embedded Linux.”

Accepted submissions could range from products that are being delivered in large quantities to a product still under development, say the organizers. So far, the only announced exhibitor is Bug Labs, which recently introduced a modular, open source embedded computer system called Bug (pictured above).

According to the Linux Garage web page, priority will be given to “small or pre-production projects that hearken back to the earliest days of Linux while at the same time giving us a glimpse into the future.” Winning submissions will demonstrate “originality” and “the ability to generate interest.”

Stated Melinda Kendall, VP and GM, LinuxWorld/NGDC, “The Linux Garage will be the must see area for developers, media, and every attendee with a little bit of geek in them to check out the latest developments in Linux technology.”


The LinuxWorld Conference & Expo will be held on August 4-7 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Submissions for the Linux Garage can be made here.
