Unlike some introductions to Node.js that spend time explaining event loops and web sockets, this session start with a typical “Hello, Node” demo and quickly moves to short, fully-functional pps that show how to deal with static files, POST forms, mashups from other servers, file manipulation, data-handling, and even supporting HTTP Authentication.
The Yocto Project™ is an open source collaboration project that provides tools to enable you create custom Linux-based systems for embedded products. This presentation describes the project in detail, contrasts it with other existing solutions, and provides a working example showing how you can create your own embedded distribution, with or without hardware.
Facebook's Frank Frankovsky will lead a panel of industry leaders in a discussion of the challenges and opportunities in building open source movements around hardware. Frank will share key learnings from the Open Compute Project (a prominent industry initiative focused on driving greater openness and collaboration in infrastructure technology) and draw out similar insights from the panel.
A quick intro to embedded Linux development and a survey of the capabilities and limits of the most interesting hardware available for experimenting by hardware hackers, and the skills needed to make effective use of it. Ranging from Plug Computers to bare development boards, miniaturized systems and rooted hard drives, the ever-growing bestiary of ARM devices at our disposal for projects is fun!
