Events such as the Embedded Linux Conference and Embedded Systems Conference take place in the US and Europe every year. There are plenty of talks and it’s certainly good for networking, but you need to travel to the event and the entrance fee to have access to all session costs several hundred dollars if you book early, and over one thousand dollars if you register close to the date of the event.
Most ELC/ELCE videos usually end up on The Linux Foundation YouTube channel, but the Beningo Embedded Group and Embedded Related website decided to organize a similar conference happening online and simply called the “Embedded Online Conference“.
The conference offers topics about embedded systems, DSP, machine learning and FPGA and will take place on May 20. There are currently 17 talks, but they are still calling for talks so more sessions may be added before the actual event. You’ll also be able to ask questions to the speakers.
Some examples of talks include:
- Best practices for developing real-time embedded systems
- Object classification techniques using the OpenMV H7 camera
- Securing the IoT from chip to cloud
- PYNQ: using FPGA to accelerate Python applications
The good thing is that registration is free until February 29th, after which price will be $90 until March 31, and $160 after that.
