The most widely deployed mobile virtualization solution
After two weeks in California, I spent two days in Sydney, before flying down the sunny Melbourne yesterday for linux.conf.au 2008.
Monday and Tuesday at linux.conf.au are the miniconf days. The wide variety of topics on display make things a little difficult. I was back and forward between the embedded and virtualization mini-confs.
I gave two presentations today, the first this morning was on how to port OKL4 to a new system-on-a-chip. The chip in question is the virtual Goldfish SoC, which forms the core of the emulated platform in Google's Android SDK.
The second presentation on a more high-level talk on why virtualization is a useful technology not just for large data-centers and server applications, but also for embedded systems, such a mobile phone handsets.
Unfortunately because I was presenting, I didn't really have much time to focus on some of the other great presentations that went on today. With any luck I'll be able more attentively attend some talks tomorrow.
For those interested, the talks were filmed, so hopefully videos will be up online in the near future.
