1. Meet us at T-DOSE and Embedded Linux Conference Europe


Mind is proud to announce that it will participate and give presentations at two of this Autumns' most important events in the field of Open Source Software for Embedded Systems.

First of all, Mind will give a presentation about "Fast deployment of embedded systems with buildroot" at T-DOSE in Eindhoven (The Netherlands). T-DOSE is a free and yearly event that promotes use and development of Open Source Software. During this event Open Source projects, developers and visitors can exchange ideas and knowledge. This year's event will be held on October 27th and 28th.

Two weeks later, Mind will give a presentation about "Remote upgrades: Upgrading without bricking" at the Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELCE) in Barcelona (Spain). The Embedded Linux Conference Europe is the premier vendor-neutral technical conference for companies and developers using Linux in embedded products. This conference, now in it's 7th year, has the largest collection of sessions dedicated exclusively to embedded Linux and embedded Linux developers. This year's event will be held between November 5th and November 7th 2012.

Both presentations will soon be available on our Publications page.

2. Next Embedded Linux, Device Drivers and Android™ trainings


Due to the growing success of our trainings, we have already planned a number of sessions for the remainder of the year and for next year.

The Embedded Linux training is a 5 day training which is intended for developers who want to build an Embedded Linux system from scratch or from commercial Embedded Linux solutions. The course covers the various components of an embedded Linux target (file system, networking, device drivers, processes and scheduler, interrupts, memory management, bootloaders, etc...), as well as the various development choices and debugging possibilities.
Next sessions: December 3rd to December 7th 2012, January 21st to January 25th 2013, etc...

The Linux Kernel and Driver development training is a 5 days training which is intended for developers who want to learn how to write or improve Linux Kernel Drivers for Embedded Linux platforms and Linux in general. In a 50 to 60% lab-time approach, the participants get a real hands-on experience and they learn how to avoid classical pitfalls. The training goes deep into the kernel architecture, the main APIs, the integration of device drivers with other parts of the kernel and with userspace applications.
Next sessions: December 10th to December 14th 2012, February 11th to February 15th 2013, etc...

The Android™ training is a 3 days training which is intended for developers who want to learn to write Android applications. In a 50 to 60% lab-time approach, the participants get a real hands-on experience and they learn how to work with Android and how to avoid classical pitfalls. The training first describes the Android architecture, and then covers all major parts of the API and application through theory and exercises.
Next sessions: November 28th to November 30th 2012, February 4th to February 6th 2013, etc...

On-site trainings can also be organized upon request, to meet your specific project needs and context (in terms of HW platform, Linux distribution, etc...).

3. Mind contributes to Buildroot


During the past months, Mind has increased its involvment and level of contribution to BuildRoot.

First of all, Mind has recently made several contributions for instance regarding a new package (sqlcipher), improvements of the build infrastructure (simpler specification of dependencies, simplification of dependencies on D-Bus), as well as a number of bug fixes, and more recently a big cleanup of the package infrastructure of Buildroot.

In addition, Mind will be participating in the Buildroot Developer Days which will take place in Barcelona, Spain, in co-hosting with the Embedded Linux Conference Europe. This meeting will be a mixture of discussion and hacking session around the Buildroot project.

4. Technology Focus: "Remote upgrade: the only piece of software you have to get right"


This short article published in DSP Valley's newsletter of June 2012 describes the advantages of implementing a Remote Upgrade system in an embedded device and the most important issues to be considered to allow smooth and risk-free remote upgrades.
