The Internet of Things and Life Beyond Linux - Wolfgang Mauerer, Technical University Regensburg/Siemens AG

The Internet of Things (IoT) is quickly becoming an everyday reality -
but will it be an Internet of Linux things? While Linux once used to
run on everything that even remotely resembled a 32 bit computer, the
kernel kept growing during the last decade, and will continue grow.

Despite efforts to trim down the kernel, full Linux stacks will not
never pay off for all IoT devices and scenarios. This need not be a
disadvantage! In this talk, we remind developers that the Linux
ecosystem is much more than just a kernel, and show the benefits of
alternative approaches. We provide use-cases and examples based
on real and virtual systems, and discuss criteria when to choose Linux,
and when to prefer other approaches. Most importantly, we will argue
why other systems should not be treated as competitors, but as friendly
additions to the Linux ecosystem.
