As one can tell from the dates – this blog is not entirely abandoned, but somewhat behind the times. If I have an excuse it is because I am going to so many conferences and spending all my time working on the . Please feel free to contact me in person for anything related to the Yocto Project, OpenEmbedded, or embedded Linux in general. (You can find my email address or Google+ persona with a quick search)

…but probably not before early January, sorry all. However, I can share a few current tidbits:

– The Linux Foundation has announced its 2013 conference schedule, the first of which is the Android Builder’s Summit and the Embedded Linux Conference, co-located during the week of February 18-22 at the Parc 55 Hotel on Union Square in San Francisco, CA. There will also be a Yocto Project Developer Day at the location on Tuesday February 19, details to come. The CFP for the both conferences is open now through January 4, so get those talks in.

OSCON has announced its CFP as well, open now through February 4. The conference will take place July 22-26 in Portland, Oregon. 

– During the weekend preceding OSCON on July 20-21, the 6th annual Community Leadership Summit will be held. This free event is a really fantastic place to learn more about community management and share best practices. If you happen to be in the SF Bay area, there will also be a regional event in early February – watch this space for details.

I just updated my page on Free Embedded Linux Training and wanted to mention this here as well, in case you haven’t heard yet.

The Yocto Project is providing a full day of embedded Linux training FREE OF CHARGE in Barcelona, Spain, the day after the Embedded Linux Conference Europe, on 8 November, 2012. More information here or contact me in the comments below.

(Full disclosure: I am the community manager for the Yocto Project)

Laura Arjona has created a new FLOSS events calendar that uses dotcal, check it out! A very interesting presentation, and probably more complete for non-US events than the one I maintain.
