ELCE 2016 in Review

Execution time:
Our team just returned from the Embedded Linux Conference Europe 2016 in Berlin last week. It was a great occasion to demo our existing and upcoming solutions for developing and deploying software to connected devices, and hear how people are using for their own projects.
The highlight of our time at ELCE was the announcement of resinOS: an open source host OS for running Docker containers on embedded devices. Check out the blogpost, the presentation slides, and the resinOS website for more detailed info! The announcement and the currently available beta1 version prompted a lot of interesting discussions. Looking forward to incorporating ideas from the feedback we've received into future resinOS releases!
You should also check out slides from other talks, available on the eLinux wiki, including Tim Bird's Status of Embedded Linux overview from the end of the conference.
The main topics of interest we picked up from visitors to our booth this year were:
  • focus on security of devices and software deployment;
  • desire to shorten the release cycle of hardware projects;
  • the need not to be locked into any one specific cloud infrastructure;
  • wanting to have flexible deploy strategies that work across teams and customers;
