What we're about

The Edinburgh Linux User Group is a volunteer-led community which aims to promote and support the use of GNU/Linux and Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FOSS) in the local community.

We host bi-monthly (sometimes monthly) talks on topics around Linux and FOSS computing topics from beginner to advanced levels, in a welcoming and convivial setting.

Talks are sourced from volunteers and the wider FOSS community - anybody can come along to attend, and we welcome new talks of all levels on the topic of FOSS in general or */Linux in particular.

Our Code of Conduct (https://edlug.gitlab.io/coc/) is available on our website.

Talk | A crash course in embedded linux hardware

Online event

Welcome back to EdLUG for 2022! Craig Burden has kindly stepped up to tell us about embedded Linux, so we're going to be getting a glimpse into the world of PCBs and integrated circuits that lies on the other side of the Linux kernel.

As per usual, we'll meet and chat from 7pm, and start the talk around 7.15.


A crash course in embedded linux hardware

A shallow dive into the world of embedded linux and what makes up a typical embedded system.
We'll be covering the minimum requirements, typical applications and design considerations as well as touching on what linux looks like in these systems and how to compile and configure the kernel.
In the process we will demystify common design outcomes and most importantly explain why the circuit boards look like they were routed by world champion snake player.
