Dronecode Foundation Meetings @ Embedded Linux Conference

March 23 – 25th, 2015

Registration:  Closed.

The Dronecode Foundation meetings will be held in conjunction with the 2015 Embedded Linux Conference (ELC).  ELC is the premier vendor-neutral technical conference for companies and developers using Linux in embedded products. This conference, now in its 11th year, has the largest collection of sessions dedicated exclusively to embedded Linux and embedded Linux developers. In 2015, the theme of the event is ‘Drones, Things and Automobiles’, with tracks on Automotive Linux, IoT and Drones.

Wednesday March 25th, is the ‘unconference’ day for DroneCode. We will have a room all day for talks and discussions on all things related to DroneCode. To anchor the discussions we will have a set of short talks by members of the development community. These talks will act as an introduction to round table discussion topics.

You can participate in the unconference either by being there in person (if you are going to ELC) or by joining the discussions on mumble. We will use the DroneCode channel in mumble. There will be a microphone in the room and we will also be live streaming via hangouts on air. To actively participate in the discussions you should join the mumble channel. Please be careful to mute yourself when not speaking.
