What it's like to work as a software person at Intel (video)

I'm taking a break from my usual posts about embedded Linux and the Yocto Project to let you in on a little secret.

Working at as a software person at Intel can be pretty awesome.

A few weeks ago, we had a video crew stalking our offices, rolling tape on some of our work day. I heard last night from Sarah Sharp that the result was up on YouTube. It was intended as a recruitment tool, but it's a nice artifact of everyday life here. Some highlights from the video:

A couple of months ago, the Yocto Project reached a kind of strange milestone. Some of my friends like Bill Mills suggested I should be blogging about it, but for some reason it was hard for me wrap my head around it. Here's my attempt.

Fresh Yocto Code - the M2 Milestone release for embedded Linux goodness

Today we dropped another development milestone build for the Yocto Project. Introducing the M2 build.

Progress on the next Yocto Project release

We had a lot of excitement last April when we launched the 1.0 version of the Yocto Project. We celebrated a little while, and then got ourselves back to work to begin working on the next release of the Yocto Project, due in October.

We had a great face-to-face meeting at the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit (LFCS) of what we were calling the Yocto Project Steering Group. In case you are worried that such a meeting is in plush surroundings, let me set you straight right away.

"Comrades, we declare the Revolution... in a coffeehouse"

This is a cross-post from my blog on the Yocto Project web site. Please visit us there for more information about the project and our work on embedded Linux.

In a classic 1966 science fiction novel [1], some of the moon’s colonists are hiding out in a hotel room in Luna City in the year 2075, and realize that the lunar colony is headed for inevitable chaos and death. So a group of four colonists decided to declare a revolution and they began to formulate their ambitious plans to overthrow the status quo.

Your Vote for the Future of Yocto

I cross-posted this from my blog on the Yocto Project website. Hope you can help us for the future of embedded Linux.

Just a gentle reminder that we are still soliciting your ideas for the next major release of the Yocto Project.

Given that we are close to releasing the 1.0 version of the Yocto Project, we're now sorting through the input we have collected or heard for the next major release, planned for October 2011.

Here on the first day of spring, the northen hemisphere is beginning to shake off the doldrums of winter and think about the summer to come. Here in western Oregon where I live, the trees are starting to bloom, and I begin to notice how my garden is full of muddy ruts.

Yocto memes rule

One of the fun things about having a metric system term as a project name is that you can use it in so many useful ways.

Just for review class, according to Wikipedia, a yocto-anything is 10-24 of that thing. So a yoctosecond is one quadrillionth of a second, a very brief time indeed. The rest mass of a proton is about 1.67 yoctograms.
