LinuxCon Europe revealed a new Linux certification program, an expansion of IBM’s OpenPower program, and quips from Linus Torvalds on ARM and Raspberry Pi.
Unlike the European edition of LinuxCon + CloudOpen, the North American version that wrapped up today in Chicago does not co-locate the Embedded Linux Conference. Still, there’s a lot more to Linux than circuit boards, industrial computers, and home automation gizmos. LinuxCon is the place to catch up on the larger tux universe of desktops, servers, and clouds. Despite the enterprise focus, there was some embedded talk in various presentations, including the Linux Kernel Developer Panel.
