The Zephyr Project is committed to supporting our community and creating opportunities for our developers and members to share their work and evangelize the project within the the larger open source ecosystem. On June 24-26, members of the Zephyr Project had the privilege to travel to Beijing, China for the LinuxCon+ContainerCon+CloudOpen (or LC3) event to do just that. Over the course of 3 days developers, member representatives and community members had the chance to meet, share how they are using Zephyr OS to build innovative products and work together to promote the initiative to the local developer community.
LC3 drew more than 2,000 attendees from around the world looking to learn, share and collaborate with the open source community. Wayne Ren (Synopsis), Ryan Qian (NXP) and Kate Stewart (Linux Foundation) gave 2 formal Zephyr presentations attended by nearly 90 developers. The topics covered were an Introduction to Zephyr Project and Retrofitting Memory Protection in ZephyrOS. Please follow the links to view their slides.
In addition to the conference, the Zephyr Project also teamed up with EdgeX Foundry, Linux Foundation and VMWare to host and IoT Meetup. Around 50 developers, professional technologists, students and business leaders heard 8 presentations on a variety of use cases and technical topics centered on open source real time operating systems, edge computing and connected devices. For more information on the presentations and to see the full speaker lineup please visit the event page.
We would like to offer special thanks to Alan Ren, General Manager of the VMWare China R&D Center and Tiejun Chen, Staff Engineer and Technical Leader of the VMWare China R&D Center for their generosity and hospitality hosting this very fun and interesting event.
