The Embedded Linux Conference (ELC) is the premier vendor-neutral technical conference for companies and developers using Linux in embedded products. This conference, now in its 9th year, has the largest collection of sessions dedicated exclusively to embedded Linux and embedded Linux developers. ELC is embedded Linux experts talking about solutions to your embedded Linux problems. ELC consists of 3 days of presentations, tutorials and Bird-of-a-Feather sessions. There are over 50 sessions to choose from, on a wide variety of topics.
BeagleBone, the newest tool in the BeagleBoard platform, is a low-cost credit-card-sized computer with plenty of I/O and processing power for real-time analysis provided by the TI Sitara(tm) AM335x ARM(r) Cortex(tm)-A8 processor. BeagleBone can be complemented with a wide range of "cape" plug-in boards which augment BeagleBone's functionality, as well as an experienced 5,000+ member community on BeagleBoard.org which provides projects, examples and support. Each of the four 50-minute hands-on tutorials with the BeagleBone will provide an introduction to the BeagleBone with emphasis on how to use the expansion header interfaces. The tutorials will include instruction on how to "breadboard" a LED, push button, and i2c based EEPROM along with and interact with them from Linux. Attendees will need to bring a laptop with a terminal application such as minicom(Linux) or teraterm(Windows).
