LiMux And The FOSS Ecosystem - Stefan Koehler
The LiMux project has gained worldwide attention when the City Of Munich decided to switch to a linux­based client in 2003. Today more than 15.000 clients run on LiMux. This talk will shed light on the initial decision process, the projects history und current state. It will get you to know the technical base that secured the projects success and the infrastructure used for system and configuration management.

LiMux heavily relies on FOSS components like (K)Ubuntu, Puppet, LibreOffice or Firefox. The talk will highlight the requirements to use FOSS in an enterprise environment, how well these requirements were met and what developpers might bear in mind to make life easier for people actually using their software on a larger scale.

From the very beginning the LiMux projects has been under immense attack from various sides. Nevertheless it became a huge success and working on a linux­based client has become routine for the majority of Munich's employees. The talk will conclude by trying to draw a picture of the projects future and how LiMux and the community may interact closer to make both worlds better.

Teaching Fish to Fly - John Hawley, Intel
In 2013, at the Embedded Linux Conference in Europe in Edinburgh, there was a race between a dog and a blimp. It was said that despite the dogs win, that the blimp had participated in the miracle of flight. In 2014 we intend to show that the brains of that dog can be transplanted and that it too, can participate in the miracle of flight.

The talk is mainly targeting taking an off the shelf embedded platform, Minnowboard Max, and it's use in UAVs, specifically quad-copters. With the ability to do real time computer vision, as well as various GPIO capabilities we'll explore the directions that significantly more autonomous UAVs can take with Linux and embedded platforms using, mostly, off the shelf components.
