Wind River's “Worldwide User Conference” was held in Orlando, Florida this week. The three-day event drew 600 registrations, said to be the most in the event's history. The event featured entertaining and informative keynotes, sessions, workshops, training, an exhibits area, and “deep dive” technical demonstrations, according to the company.

Event highlights included:

  • Featured speakers

  • 135 technical and business track sessions and workshops
  • “Turnkey partner pavilion showcase area” featuring exhibits from over 45 partners, including event sponsors Freescale Semiconductor, IBM, Intel, and Motorola

Wind River launched the conference with two free training classes on its Linux and VxWorks based device software platforms. The two hour classes covered project management, debugging, and analyzing. Additionally, a follow-up class introduced Wind River's general-purpose Linux platform.

Chief Marketing Officer John Bruggeman stated, “DSO [Device Software Optimization] is an emerging market, and managing and executing a DSO approach to device software across entire product lines will be increasingly expected by world-class manufacturers and suppliers. To that end, we're excited to offer these free training modules.”

Breaking news from Wind River's conference includes an Opera deal, Freescale partnership, and a remote maintenance tool for devices that enables dynamic instrumentation, diagnostics, and software patching.
