Community is a fluid concept that readily crosses competitive boundaries, as evidenced by the numerous hardware and software communities sponsored by vendors or established in open-source venues. However, there is no central point. Where can I go if I have a question or just want to listen to the questions of others? How do I even go about finding out whom to ask?
Since all developers are members of different communities, this BoF is open to everyone. The discussion topic is how to make “the embedded Linux community” as a whole more approachable and easier to navigate for both the beginner and the experienced developer, project manager, support engineer, or technical writer.
Jeff Osier-Mixon is a technical writer, developer advocate, and community manager at MontaVista Software LLC, a market leader in embedded Linux. Jeff blogs about open source issues at http://jefro.wordpress.com (Jeff’s Open Source Resource).
