Collabora is in Portland for ELC 2017!

Starting today, and for the next few days, a number of Collaborans, including Guy Lunardi, Daniel Stone, Gustavo Padovan and Justin Kim will be taking part in this year's Embedded Linux Conference North America, the "premier vendor-neutral technical conference for companies and developers using Linux in embedded products". If you see one of them walking the halls, please come say hello!

Furthermore, Gustavo Padovan, Principal Software Engineer, will be giving a talk at 3:30 PST on Thursday, February 23 titled Unifying Android and Mainline Kernel Graphics Stack:

The Android ecosystem has tons of out-of-tree patches and a good part of them are to support Graphics drivers. This happened because the Upstream Kernel didn't support everything that is needed by Android. However the Mainline Graphics Stack has evolved in the last few years and features like Atomic Modesetting and Explicit Fencing support are making the dream of running Android on top of it possible. In other words, we will have Android and Mainline Kernels sharing the same Graphics stack!

This talk will cover what has been happening both on Android and Mainline Graphics Stacks in order to get Android to use the Upstream Kernel by default, going from what Android have developed to workaround the lack of upstream support to the latest improvements on the Mainline Graphics Stack and how they will fit together.

You can read more about Gustavo's work on mainline explicit fencing in his 3-part blog series: part 1part 2 and part 3.

Check out the full ELC 2017 schedule here. We look forward to seeing you there!
