Linux Plumbers Conf was a huge success due to the huge amount of effort put forth by the organizers and the great turnout of attendees. Thanks to everyone!
A highlight of the conference, for me, was meeting some of the folks in the DVB/V4L community. This was the first time that this many core video developers were together in the same place and a lot was accomplished. There was discussion about the new DVB API for supporting new protocols, libv4l’s progress, routing APIs for future devices, and my discussion about a V4L server. Also, I found out that Mauro now works for Red Hat- which is great news for the subsystem.
For those who weren’t able to make it LWN has a collection of good wrap-up articles on the front page. Also, Sri is working on getting videos of the keynote and some other events up on the web. Keep an eye on LinuxPlumbersConf.org for those.
