Hello +Linux Foundation Webmaster, the page http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/open-source-summit-europe/program/schedule is saying that the Open Source Summit is held from October 23 to October 26. But that very same page, in the section "Schedule at a glance" only shows things planned on October 23, 24 and 25.

So, is the Open Source Summit a 4-day event, or a 3-day event ?

A nice new service we've been developing recently at Free Electrons, now publicly available! Ready-to-use and free cross-compilation toolchains, for many CPU architectures, C libraries and configurations.
After announcing http://elixir.free-electrons.com recently, we are now happy to announce another service to the embedded Linux community: http://toolchains.free-electrons.com.

This website provides a large number of free and ready-to-use cross compilation toolchains, for a wide range of CPU architectures, C libraries and configurations. It currently provides 138 toolchains, and we will extend this to additional platforms/configurations depending on the feedback we receive.

See our blog post at http://free-electrons.com/blog/free-and-ready-to-use-cross-compilation-toolchains/ for more details. Feedback and suggestions are welcome, the project issue tracker is at https://github.com/free-electrons/toolchains-builder/issues

Our developer/sysadmin Mikael Bouillot did a really great job to deliver our new Linux kernel code indexing tool, Elixir! It looks really nice and is very fast. Great improvements compared to the LXR tool we had been using until now.
It's been online since a few weeks, so it was time to announce it officially: +Free Electrons is proud to publish Elixir, its new Linux kernel code indexing tool, providing numerous improvements over the older LXR tool we had been using so far.

Read our blog post at http://free-electrons.com/blog/elixir/ to learn more about this tool, and head to http://elixir.free-electrons.com/ to discover it!

We welcome feedback, such as issues and suggestions, on the project bug tracker at https://github.com/free-electrons/elixir/issues

Video of my talk at #lca2017 is already online at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNol7fRGo2E. Very good job from the #lca2017! Even the Linux Foundation needs several months to put videos online, here at LCA the videos are published the day after the talk was giving.

Congrats to #lca2017 folks!

Due to an upcoming trip to Australia/New Zealand, I am going to spend an insane amount of time in an airplane or in airport waiting for an airplane.

In preparation for this, I am looking for suggestions of ebooks to read, especially in the area of low-level/hardware development (FPGA for beginners, architecture of processors, etc.), kernel related things, or ebooks related to team management. For example, "Is parallel programming hard, and if so, what can I do about it?" looks like a good thing to read during this time.

Suggestions welcome :-) Thanks!
