Paul Barker to speak at FOSDEM

(virtual) FOSDEM ’21

FOSDEM is an annual two-day event organized by volunteers to promote the widespread use of free and open source software. Usually taking place in the beautiful city of Brussels (Belgium), it will be held virtually this year on February 6 and 7.

Konsulko Group’s Paul Barker will give a presentation on Embedded Linux License Compliance for Hackers & Makers, featuring practices and tools you can use to improve compliance with open source licenses as a hobbyist or small business using OpenEmbedded/Yocto Project, Buildroot or other Embedded Linux build systems.

FOSDEM is open to all. No registration is necessary. We hope you will join us online for this important open source event.

See you at FOSDEM

Konsulko Group engineers will be attending FOSDEM ’20 on February 1 & 2. Look for us during the conference around the Automotive Grade Linux and OpenEmbedded stands, or at Leon Anavi’s presentation on Saturday, Building Homebridge with the Yocto Project. Hope we see you in Brussels!

Join us at FOSDEM

Please join us at FOSDEM, the annual free event for software developers to meet, share ideas and collaborate. Every year, thousands of developers of free and open source software from all over the world gather in Brussels.

If you are at the event on February 2, you may want to attend an informal, no-host dinner of embedded and automotive community developers. Be sure to register if you plan to go.

Leon Anavi, Konsulko Group senior software engineer will give two talks at FOSDEM:
Making Open Source Hardware for Retrogaming on Raspberry Pi in which he will explain how to use device tree overlay for a simple gamepad, and The Software Developer’s Guide to Open Source Hardware.

We hope to see you there.

The Year in Review

2018 has been a very important year for Konsulko Group.

We are privileged to work with outstanding customers, helping them build the software for exciting and essential devices and vehicles. From Level 5 autonomous taxis and open source automotive platforms to innovative consumer devices, from lifesaving medical devices and advanced robotic surgery tools to the high-end networking equipment that powers the Internet, these are all products that impact and even shape our lives, now and into the future.

In addition to our commercial activity, we continued our community work in key open source projects, including the Linux kernel, Yocto Project, OpenEmbedded and Automotive Grade Linux, and participated at open source conferences around the world, like FOSDEM, ELC/ELCE, FOSSASIA, TuxCon and OpenFest.

We accelerated our work with Automotive Grade Linux and the Linux Foundation, supporting AGL development, demos and member meetings in North America, Europe and Japan, as well as presenting multiple technical talks at all four Embedded Linux Conferences, developing the AGL Deep Dive workshop and providing expert training, both as a Linux Foundation Authorized Training Partner and via the Embedded Apprentice Linux Engineer program found at leading conferences (

Finally, we continued to grow our company, welcoming new engineers, increasing the size of our European development center in Bulgaria and opening a new branch in Sweden.

Hopefully, 2018 has been merely a prelude to great things coming in 2019. We look forward to working with all of you in the coming year.
