Tomorrow, January 15, 2010, is the final day for submissions of presentations, BoFs, and demos to the Embedded Linux Conference. This annual conference, sponsored by CELF, is the premier event for embedded Linux experts in the western hemisphere. I have spoken at CELF for the past few years and I can say that it is a very friendly and collegial event, both for experts and for those new to embedded Linux, and that the CELF folks are awesome. I learned more in three days at ELC than I did in half a year of computer science classes in college, and it is all up-to-the-minute current.

This year the conference is being held in the Kabuki Hotel in San Francisco, as it was last year, and is again co-located with the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit. Collab Summit is normally an invitation-only event, but ELC participants are given invitations.

Also keep an eye out for ELC Europe in the fall, and check out the calendar of open-source conferences.
