Retrospective look at a decade of Single Board Computing


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.

experiences developing BeagleBone into an open computing platform that

real-time capabilities.
