Hello, Vancouver!

Starting tomorrow, Collaborans, including Robert Foss, Helen Koike and Mark Filion, will be in beautiful British Columbia to take part, and speak, in this year's Open Source Summit North America, "a technical conference where 2,000+ developers, operators and community leadership professionals convene to collaborate, share information and learn about the latest in open technologies". If you are planning on attending, come say hello or catch one of our presentations!

Presentations

  • "Shifting Media App Development into High Gear" by Helen Koike – Thursday, August 30, 16:00 PST.

    Merged in the 4.12 kernel, the Virtual Media Controller Driver (vimc) is now making it easier than ever to develop media applications using the increasingly complex V4L2 kernel API, all without the need for real hardware. In this talk, we'll look at how this new virtual driver came to be, its main features, how it talks to API extensions like the Subdevice and Media Controller APIs and the designed API for configuring the virtual hardware. We'll also discuss how it can be useful for automated V4L2 API testing and V4L2 Core development, and will preview future development plans.

  • "Status of the Open Source GPU Ecosystem" by Robert Foss – Friday, August 31, 16:00 PST.

    Ten years ago no one would have expected the embedded GPU ecosystem in Linux to be what it is now. Today, a large number of GPUs have Open Source support and for those that aren't supported yet, improvements are happening at a rapid pace. In just the last year Vivante GPUs have gained mainline support and Mali GPUs have seen good progress being made. In this talk, Robert will cover GPUs in the embedded space and give an overview about their current status, what lies ahead and how the Open Source state of the art compares to the proprietary alternatives.
