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.

NASA announced today that they will be hosting another Open Source Summit, this time in College Park, MD. This conference, which the organizers state will be “more workshop than presentation”, is a fantastic way to learn more about using open source within government. The difficult part is that it is only 2 weeks away!

Ottawa Linux Symposium, the venerable Canadian Linux conference, has changed its date this summer to avoid a conflict with another event. The new dates are July 11-13 in Ottawa. See the OLS website for more details.

Thanks to alert reader Jeremy, who noticed the old date on the Open Source Conferences page.
