Creating Digital Products - hosted at Campus London, a Google space based in London.

From Handheld Gaming Devices to the Internet of Things: Learn how today's most in-demand consumer electronic products are created from scratch.

Dear CGC members,

We have another very exciting day coming up on 21st May. Join us at Campus London, a Google space based in London to learn from two industry veterans how today's most in-demand consumer electronic devices such as Handheld Gaming devices or the Internet of Things devices are created from scratch - including the hardware and the software.

We will be focusing on creating single board computers using ARM® powered microprocessors ( ) and show you how we can get 3D graphics acceleration out of the device by integrating GPU drivers into a distribution of the Linux® ( ) operating system.

We will start at 9am sharp on Thursday 21st May and finish the day before 5pm.

* Registration is required *
If you are planning to join us make sure you RSVP here so we can keep track of the numbers and names.

Here is a brief agenda for you (subject to slight change):

12:30 - Break for one hour - Networking opportunity

13:30 - Laurent Pinchart, a software industry veteran with many years of experience in developing Display subsystems for the Linux Kernel, will show how he integrated an open source graphics driver into a distribution of the Linux operating system to run 3D accelerated graphics and user interfaces on the imx6rex.

16:00 - Q&A sessions for 30 minutes

16:30 - Networking
