Live stream:  https://youtu.be/jf7W_yFkaTo

Summary:

Retrospective look at a decade of Single Board Computing

Abstract:

Please join us for a walk down memory lane as we look at the history of
Single Board Computers (SBCs), Systems-on-chip (SOCs), Systems-on-chip
(SOMs), and dev boards as members talk about the ones that they used
most. We will discuss the history of embedded Linux in advance of the
ELC and HPEC conferences and talk about how the embedded hardware
hacking community supported the larger Linux movement and vice versa.

Bio
Federico Lucifredi is The Ceph Storage Product Management Director at
Red Hat, formerly the Ubuntu Server PM at Canonical, and the Linux
"Systems Management Czar" at SUSE.

Jason Kridner is Open Platforms Technologist/Evangelist for Texas
Instruments, where he focuses on defining strategy for growing TI's open
platform ecosystem for developers and customers. Jason is the co-founder
and community manager for BeagleBoard.org, designers of BeagleBone
Black. Jason is named on 11 patents and has been programming personal
computers since 1979 as a hobbyist and professional. He worked on the
first wave of MP3 player designs in 1998. Jason will talk about his
experiences developing BeagleBone into an open computing platform that
is powered by a 1GHz ARMv7 CPU and 2 200MHz 32-bit microcontrollers with
real-time capabilities.
