BayLibre will attend FOSDEM 2015

BayLibre is really excited to attend FOSDEM at Bruxelles for the very first time. The agenda for the Embedded track looks pretty nice. We already registered for the Friday’s talk as well, named “Beer Distribution Algorithm v3.3 (stable)“. That sounds really technical.

BayLibre is hiring, so if you want to meet us, we will be around.

See you there!

BayLibre at Embedded Linux Conference Europe and Linux Plumbers

After the great Kernel Recipes in Paris 2 weeks ago, BayLibre will continue its European tour and will have the pleasure to attend two major events in Düsseldorf, Germany next week (ELCE and LPC).

The whole band will present a demo of our “Made in France” open HW running open source SW.
Later, Patrick will be on stage, playing solo, to present our latest hit : “Leveraging Open-Source Power Measurement Standard Solution“.

See you there and we’ll be happy to share some drinks backstage.

Let there be Linux!

Kernel Recipes 2014

Kernel Recipes 2014 

BayLibre is the proud sponsor of Kernel Recipes which will take place in Paris on the 25th and the 26th of September. This is the first event we are sponsoring and here is why:

Kernel recipes is the last event where kernel hackers from all over the world can meet up free of charge. It is a place for exchange, conferences which is in phase with the original mindset of Linux and the open source community. It’s free, it’s open, the content exchanged is of good quality and it is friendly. To top it all, it takes place in Paris downtown.

Come and share kernel recipes….and a beer 🙂 with us!
