Fish Fry Meets Software Freedom Conservancy

Once in a while, we all need some help. When the vast landscape of our next software project makes our head hurt, we need a place to go to hang out and throw our ideas around. So – where do we go? Software Freedom Conservancy, that’s where. My guest this week is Bradley M. Kuhn – Executive Director of Software Freedom Conservancy. Brad and I chat about what Software Freedom Conservancy is all about, how we can participate, what projects they are working on, and I even slip in little question about New York City. Also this week, I check out the Tiny Engineer Superhero Emergency Kit and reveal how this tiny but mighty kit can impress your friends and family.

Computing at the Edge

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and NXP

Edge computing is not the realm of one-size-fits-all computing. Real-world systems have a variety of node hardware that needs to be managed and secured. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Altaf Hussain from NXP about the complications of (and some solutions for) edge computing with NXP’s Layerscape processors.
