Norik Systems is organizing Real-Time Linux Workshop at Embedded World 2004

28 January 2004 - As members of Real-Time Linux Foundation, Norik Systems and Opentech were selected to organize a Real-Time Linux Workshop at Embedded World 2004. The Embedded World Exhibition&Conference is the world’s biggest exhibition of its kind and the meeting-place of the international embedded community.

Real-Time Linux Workshop is a hands-on session. After 3 hours, participants should be able to install an embedded real-time Linux development environment on their Linux desktop system and get up and running embedded Linux with real-time extension. Pre-installed systems using Slackware 9.1 Download edition are the basis for this session. Install guides for this distribution are included in the provided documents but the systems are used pre-installed due to time limitations. Slackware 9.1 (Download edition) wil be provided to participants, all real-time software will be provided with the proceedings CD of the 5th Real-Time Linux Workshop which was held at the University of Valencia, Spain, in November 2003.
