Buildroot Developers Meeting, 14-16 October 2016, Berlin

Location and date

The Buildroot community is organizing a meeting on October 14th, 15th and 16th 2016 in Berlin (Germany), for Buildroot developers and contributors. This meeting will be a mixture of discussion and hacking session around the Buildroot project. This meeting takes place either right after the Embedded Linux Conference Europe in order to make it easy for participants to attend both events. It is not mandatory to attend all three days of the meeting.

The meeting will take place at In-Berlin, Lehrter Str. 53, 10557 Berlin (map). The meeting hours will be:

  • Friday: 9 AM to 6 PM, followed by a dinner in a restaurant.
  • Saturday: 9 AM to 10 PM.
  • Sunday: 9 AM to ~5 PM depending on when the participants will be leaving


We would like to thank Mind, which is sponsoring the Friday night dinner. Mind is the Embedded Software division of Essensium, which provides consultancy and services specifically in the field of Linux and Open Source SW for Embedded Systems.

We are still looking for a sponsor for the location. It is a hackerspace that accepts voluntary donations, so any amount is good!
