On the 15th and 16th of October 2009 around 200 people gathered together in the beautiful south-easten French city of Grenoble, situated at the foot of the French Alps, to talk about embedded Linux. Although there were many talks over the two days the underlying theme of the conference seemed to be boot-time reduction and android.

I made quite a few notes from the talks I attended which can be found here:

I greatly enjoyed the event. The talks ranged from high level strategic (e.g. GenIVI) to in-depth and technical (e.g. Device Tree’s for ARM) but all were very well done. I also got to meet old and new friends alike which is always good.

ELC continues to be one of my favourite events and I look forward to attending next year.

Oh and on my travels around the city I came across a most innovative shop sign, very cool.
