February was a pretty hectic month. Among other things, we put in appearances at the Embedded Linux Conference and SCALE.
Embedded Linux Conference, which was held at the Parc 55 hotel in San Francisco, focused on using the open source operating system in a variety of embedded systems. Open webOS is based on Linux so it was a good fit for the team. Roy Sutton and Peter Helm manned the HP booth and talked not only about Open webOS but also how Enyo could be used in embedded systems that provided touch-sensitive displays.
Following that conference, Roy headed to SCALE 11x in Los Angeles. There he teamed up with Open webOS intern Patrick Roberts and webOS Ports team leader Tom King. At SCALE, Roy gave a presentation on the history of Open webOS and the process that it took to open source such a large piece of code. He and Tom also gave a presentation on what it takes to keep a community of developers interested in an open source project.
As always, we welcome you to join the Open webOS project. Drop by the webOS Ports IRC channel and see how you can get involved.
