Embedded Linux Conference Europe

A few weeks ago our Embedded developers Geert and Ronald visited the Embedded Linux Conference (ELC) in Prague.

The open source summit is the technology conference for companies and developers using Linux in embedded products. For the past 12 years, ELC has had the largest collection of sessions dedicated exclusively to embedded Linux and embedded Linux developers.

At ELC, you can collaborate with other experts on all aspects of embedded Linux from hardware to user space development. It is the place to be for product vendors, kernel developers and systems developers to collaborate with technologists building the applications running on embedded Linux platforms.

“5 days, 260 speakers, 2000 attendees, great amount of keynotes”

Benefits of Attending ELC:

  • Learn about the newest and most interesting embedded technologies in a vendor-neutral setting

  • Get access to leading experts in both formal and informal settings

  • Have fascinating discussions and collaborate with both peers and experts in embedded Linux

  • Gain a competitive advantage with innovative embedded Linux solutions

“The Embedded Linux Conference is the not to be missed annual event for influential technologists in embedded Linux!”

What we loved:

  • Inspiring talks

  • A lot of common ground with what we are doing @Clay


  • Networking opportunity with the developer community

  • Linus Bendict Trovalds (the founder of Linux) was a surprise guest


How to become a brick

What is Linux:

Linux is an operating system like Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Mac OS X. It manages all of the hardware resources associated with your desktop or laptop, as well as the communication between your software and your hardware. Without the operating system your software wouldn’t function.

Why use Linux:

Linux is one of the most reliable computer systems and it’s free. Your data will not be lost while using Linux and you don’t have to clean your system on a yearly basis.

Save the Date!

Open Source Summit + Embedded Linux Conference Europe 2018 will be held October 22 – 24 in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Make sure to look at our Stackoverflow page and maybe you’ll be the next developer visiting ELC on behalf of Clay!
