Post #: 20
Target Audience: Engineers and programmers interested in designing the next generation of connected embedded systems.
Prerequisites: Basic understanding of Linux, hardware architectures and embedded systems. Some experience with C and Erlang would be useful but not required.
Objectives:
This tutorial will provide an overview of:
Current tools and methodologies employed in embedded systems
Embedded Linux and the ecosystem around it
Hardware drivers and interfacing
Erlang 101, focusing on features that are relevant to managing hardware
Erlang Embedded framework, a new proposal for architecting embedded systems
Duration: One day.
Registration: 08:30 on 20 March 2013.
Venue: Marines' Memorial Club and Hotel in Union Square.
Description: While not a new concept, Embedded Linux is becoming more and more popular with the barriers for entry being lowered by projects such as the Raspberry Pi.

In this hands on tutorial we will design an Erlang powered embedded sensor node, running on the Raspberry Pi. We will take you through the steps required to build and deploy the Linux image, deal with hardware interfacing and backend connectivity.
