LG's new embedded Linux-based WebOS TVs are on sale now in the U.S. and Europe.  
WebOS developers took the stripped down mobile operating system and turned it back into a fully fledged embedded operating system for a TV in less than a year.

Continental's self-driving car tech is "likely" Linux, says analyst Mark Fitzgerald in this Linux.com story yesterday.  https://www.linux.com/news/embedded-mobile/mobile-linux/737295-linux-leads-self-driving-car-movement
The automotive supplier's technology is moving toward 'highly automated driving,' with IBM servers processing real-time vehicle data so cars can anticipate detailed driving conditions. Read this article by Stephen Shankland on CNET News.

If you're an unpaid  Linux kernel developer, apply for free travel to the kernel summit in Edinburgh this year!
 
HOBBYIST WANTED!!!! 

 **  *Linux kernel hobbyist to attend Kernel Summit* **

As an experiment this year, the Linux Kernel Summit Program Committee would like to put out a call for hobbyists. This year, we have up to three places to give to people who do Linux Kernel development as a hobby rather than a profession (Our definition of "hobbyist" is anyone who doesn't get paid to work on Linux).  The Linux Kernel Summit will be held this year in Edinburgh from 23-25 October and, on the core day (the 24th of October), will primarily be concentrating on processes around kernel development.  Since most top kernel developers are not hobbyists these days, this is your opportunity to make up for what we're missing. As we recognize most hobbyists don't have the resources to attend conferences, we're offering (as part of the normal kernel summit  travel fund processes) travel reimbursement as part of being selected to attend.

To apply, please send a proposal outlining what you do, what you'd bring to the kernel summit and preferably what you think the current kernel processes should be doing to encourage more hobbyist contributions (or should not be doing because it discriminates against hobbyist contributions) to:

ksummit-2013-discuss@lists.linuxfoundation.org

Please add the prefix [HOBBYIST ATTEND] to the subject line so we can easily find them.

Descriptions of particularly cool hobbyist projects in the kernel which have been overlooked by the mainstream might also be good topics for discussion.  Since the Kernel Summit is only two months away, we're looking to have hobbyist proposals submitted by 24 August.  We know that this is a tight timetable and we apologize; this idea came up too late for us to provide better notice.  The current plan is to make the hobbyist slots a permanent part of the selection criteria, so things should be less rushed in the coming years.

Please spread the word!

Hey developers, time to jump into IVI? "The demand for in-vehicle applications is a “substantial job generator with high-end pay.” cc: #Tizen  
The old-line carmakers are suddenly hungry for information technology specialists who can create apps for the next generation of connected vehicles.

I can see a "Fixer" movement doing quite well here in Portland. Reduce, reuse, recycle applies to consumer electronics, too!

"Recently my kids were hankering for a laptop. So we pulled a five-year-old Dell from a closet... And you know what? It was shockingly easy. In three hours we had the laptop running perfectly. We even removed the syphilitic mess of Windows Vista and installed Ubuntu."

What does GNU mean to you? I'm looking for Linux and open source community members to share their thoughts on the upcoming 30th anniversary for a Linux.com article. Thanks much!

This reminds me of +Jim Zemlin 's Portland TED talk. Code == art.

It's encouraging to see that people skills are so highly valued for DevOps jobs. No. 1 skill was coding and scripting of course.

In summary: First you must love programming. Then sexism won't matter to you as much.
There is always that moment when you are alone with the prejudice: the joke, the leer, the disregard, the fact that the moment you walk through the door you are seen as lesser.

Wow, that's not what I got at all. My summary would be "to survive in this industry, you must love programming more than you hate sexism, because the sexism will be awful."
