EMBEDDED LINUX CONFERENCE EUROPE 2013 - DAY 2

Second day at ELC-E 2013, let's start with an interesting keynote where Tim Bird said he prefers Buildroot rather than Yocto mainly because Yocto has a steeper learning curve. Thomas Petazzoni said that Yocto is too much dependent on big companies. On the other hand I actually think that Buildroot may be too dependent on Free Electrons business strategy.

I also attendended a presentation done by my Adeneo colleauge Nicolas Launet.
