Summary

Dart on Debian on BeagleBoneBlack, plus a Linux HPC update

Abstract

Debian + Dart + BeagleBoneBlack

Brian DeLacey introduces the recent packaging of the Dart language for Debian on the BeagleBoneBlack. We'll look at Wheezy today and Jessie tomorrow. Brian's demos will showcase a webserver and a variety of sensor circuits and applications running Dart on the Debian-friendly BeagleBoneBlack. We'll discuss how this simple setup ties into the core ideas of “The Physical Web” project, recently announced by Google.

We'll revisit the crazy code churn rant heard round the community, and why Device Tree architecture was a huge revolution for ARM platforms. We'll also review the evolution of GPIO in the Linux kernel for software controlled digital signals. Bring your multimeter for a closer look at power efficient computing.

Also, Kurt Keville updates us on the current state of Linux High Performance
Computing (HPC).
