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.
This presentation will provide engineers with recommended strategies for gaining senior management approval of mainline Linux development. Often engineers struggle to clearly outline the advantages of mainline Linux development and to quantify the financial benefits to their organizationâs bottom line while making the Linux mainline offering better and improving their respective projects. This presentation will help engineers more effectively communicate with less technical management and convey compelling arguments for mainline Linux development initiatives.
The target audience is any engineer seeking to begin mainline development within their organization. Kevin Chalmers has successfully used these strategies within TI to create a mainline development organization focused on upstream support for TI devices. He can share best practices and pitfalls in soliciting management approval.
