LinuxTag 2008 summary May 31, 2008

Posted by Florian in GPE, Linux, Maemo, OpenEmbedded.

Linke every year we had a really good time at LinuxTag! It is always a great event talking to interested users, business people and other developers. For the projects sharing this booth such as MyStep, Jalimo, GPE and OpenEmbedded it was a great success. For me it was the first time representing OpenEmbedded at a fair like this – with good results: We had quite some people who knew OE and asked specific questions and many developers with interest in using it.

LinuxTag always gives a lot of inspiration for new things to do and projects to check out. I know about some interesting software we need in OE soon – things like the Sugar framework for the OLPC and x2go. Other important tasks are to publish a list of evices that are defined in OE metadata and pushing the mobile-linux project forward.

In the Maemo track I had a short talk about GPE applications for Maemo – the slides of my talk can be found here. Unluckily I was not able to attend more of the interesting talks in this track. But I found out that the Mamona people seem to like OpenEmbedded at least :-)


The Tarent and Mobile booth right after opening in the morning… it was way more crowded a short time later.


Many thanks to all the people organizing LinuxTag and Tarent for booth and the big red sofa for sitting down to write my blog.

[…] Florian Boor referierte in seinem Vortrag über die Vorzügen der GPE Umgebung für die Maemo-Plattform. Zum Teil realisieren Programme wie GPE-Calendar Funktionen, die ein Tablet im Auslieferungszustand nicht bietet. Die Integration in Maemo ist in bestimmten Teilen (z.B. Alarmfunktionen) schwierig und die Sync-Lösung noch im Alphastadium, dafür funktionieren Termin, Kontakt, Notiz und Aufgabenverwaltung schon sehr gut. Zur Möglichkeit, mit GPE-calendar Termine über ein Webdav-Verzeichnis in beide Richtungen zu “synchronisieren”, werde ich in einem späteren Artikel eingehen. Die Präsentation zum Vortrag von Florian kann in dessen Blog besichtigt werden. […]
