When designing an embedded system, one must consider both the application and the underlying hardware in combination, if the intended long-term stability is to be achieved.

The schedule for this year's Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELCE) has just been released. As in the last years Pengutronix contributes talks to current topics around Embedded Linux.

To generate and comply with the license report should be seen as minimum standard, exceeding efforts should, if possible, be done.
