Deadline scheduling for 3.14

Realtime programming is all about deadlines, but it has often been noted that few deadlines appear to be applicable when it comes to getting realtime code into the mainline kernel.  Deadline scheduling is a classic example; I first wrote about it in 2009, and the work had already been underway for some time at that point.  But the long wait is almost over; deadline scheduling has been merged for the 3.14 kernel, which will probably be released in late March.  It may well be the most significant feature that will appear in that re

What I Saw on the CES Show Floor: Your Work on Display

CES is a beast: hundreds of announcements, overbooked hotels and crowded booths combine to make even the most frequent conference goer’s head spin. But it’s not the beast that’s of note. It’s the silent giant in those crowded booths that inspires my work for the year ahead.

Linux Drives Automotive Innovation into the New Year

With the addition just last week of the Google-led Open Automotive Alliance, nearly every automaker in the world is choosing Linux for technology integration and innovation in the car. This reminds me a lot of the early days of Linux in the enterprise or Linux in mobile. It starts small and accelerates at an exponential rate. It’s one of the unique attributes of Linux.
