Raspberry Pi-related Conference Sessions Friday Afternoon Dec 7

Hi Raspberry Pi Meetup Members:

We've arranged free admission to members of this Meetup to these three sessions Friday afternoon at the Qt Developer Days Conference . Just RSVP to this meetup and show up at the Santa Clara Marriott Friday:


1:30-2:30 BoF: Raspberry Pi

Hosted By: Jeff Tranter

Affiliation: ICS
Room: Santa Barbara

This Birds of a Feather session is for people interested in the low-cost Raspberry Pi computer platform. It will be an opportunity to share thoughts and experiences with the Raspberry Pi, both as a desktop and embedded system, and as a platform for running Qt 5.


2:45-3:45 Yocto Project, a Vehicle for Embedded Qt development Hosted By: Nitin Kamble
Affiliation: Intel
Room: Seattle

The Yocto Project is an open source collaboration project that provides templates, tools and methods to help you create custom Linux-based systems for embedded products regardless of the hardware architecture. Attendees can expect to learn the latest about the Yocto Project and how the build system provided by the Yocto Project can be used to integrate Qt-based applications into embedded systems.


4PM-5PM The Future of Qt on Embedded Linux Hosted By: Lars Knoll
Affiliation: Digia
Room: Salons B-C

For well over 10 years, Qt has been used in many types of embedded devices, ranging from high-end medical systems, through mobile phones and smartphones, all the way to simple devices like coffee makers. This presentation will show some of the work that has been put in Qt throughout the years to support embedded devices, some of the challenges that the development team faced in order to bring a fully-featured desktop toolkit to resource-limited devices, along with solutions they came up with. The talk will give an overview over the current state of Qt for embedded devices, as well as outline the plans and ideas for the future.

    Is this specifically targeted at Qt/Linux use case for RPi?

      What about alternative OSes? Personally, I'm running Plan9 on my RPi and would love to chat with non-Linux folks about common issues/pitfalls

      Sorry I don't know anything about Plan9; feel free to bring it up but frankly it does seem a little esoteric given the Qt-orientation of this conference
