Embedded Live!

By Colin Walls

We have just passed the equinox, so Autumn [or Fall, if you prefer] is upon us. We had quite a good Summer here in the UK, but now that is fast becoming a distant memory. For me, the acceptance that Summer is over is also the sign that the conference season is looming. Most significant conferences take place between September and June. So, I am just preparing for the first outing …

My first conference this year is unusual in that I have never been to it before – simply because this is its first year – and I do not need to get on an airplane, as it takes place in a city close to where I live. The conference is Embedded Live 2018 and it will be held at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, UK. The event is over two days – Tuesday and Wednesday this week.

My presentation [at 09:30 on Wednesday] is Operating Systems for Embedded Applications, which is a broad look at how operating systems work and how they fit into the design of an embedded software application.

If you are attending Embedded Live, do drop by to say hello. If you would like a copy of my presentation, please contact me via email or social media.
