Cool mikroBUS presentation at Linux Plumbers Conference!

See https://youtu.be/A3NyEjB5O38 for an early glimpse at the demo.

This will be presented at Linux Plumbers Conference on tomorrow, August 27th, by Vaishnav and is very much worth checking out.

This was somewhat tipped on https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MikroBUS-Linux-Driver-Patches based on the LKML RFC, but it seems regular readers of Phoronix don’t really get what life is like for embedded Linux developers. This really is a big deal and just part of what BeagleBoard is working on to greatly simplify the life of “IoT” developers.

Stay tuned and check out the free live stream on YouTube! https://www.youtube.com/c/LinuxPlumbersConference/videos
