Retrospective look at a decade of Single Board Computing


Please join us for a walk down memory lane as we look at the history of Single Board Computers (SBCs), Systems-on-chip (SOCs), Systems-on-chip (SOMs), and dev boards as members talk about the ones that they used most. We will discuss the history of embedded Linux in advance of the ELC and HPEC conferences and talk about how the embedded hardware hacking community supported the larger Linux movement and vice versa.


Federico Lucifredi is The Ceph Storage Product Management Director at Red Hat, formerly the Ubuntu Server PM at Canonical, and the Linux “Systems Management Czar” at SUSE.
