November Olimex Help day will be 28/11

Help Support Advice Assistance and Guidance on a signpost

Our Help day for November will be on 28/11 in Saturday in Olimex training building starting 14.00 o’clock.

What is Help day is explained here.

If you have something interesting you want to show us or if you want help with your project you are welcome.

Radoslav Kolev and Leon Anavi had interesting presentation on Open Fest about Open Embedded and Yocto and how to build Embedded Linux system with these tools. Their demonstration was with A20-OLinuXino-MICRO.

As the OpenEmbedded talk time was limited they couldn’t demonstrate all their work, so we invited them to come on the Help day and show in more details their demos, so everyone who is interested in how to setup Linux image with OpenEmbedded and Yokto receipts is welcome to the party 🙂

We will have also some H3-OLinuXino and A33-OLinuXino (waiting first prototypes to come from assembly line today)  to play with for those who are interested in them.

We will show also our new A20-OLinuXino-LIME2 with eMMC 4GB on it, which achieve remarkable speed compared to SD-card and ordinary NAND Flash:
