Reports from the field show that at least DigiKey is now shipping the BeagleBoard xM. Whee!
As many of you know, I maintain an open source conferences page that shows conferences useful to people involved with embedded Linux and other facets of open source. The data to feed it comes from a large spreadsheet I maintain by hand. I’d like to present the information in a more useful way. I also don’t want to spend time maintaining information no one uses.
If you visit that page, what do you look for, and how could it be improved? Have you connected to the Google Calendar view?
thanks for any feedback!
The latest super-secret word on the street is that the new BeagleBoard xM should start shipping tomorrow. That is, tomorrow shipping should commence from BBHQ to the distributors, who will then send it off to those who pre-ordered. Note that these are rolling out in phases, as some hardware is still tough to source. However, this is excellent news nonetheless.
Keep in mind also that you can get your very own xM by joining the Build Your Own Embedded System track at ESC Boston September 20 – 23. This track follows on the great success the team had at ESC Chicago. I wish I could attend – someone take pictures please!
