San Jose, Ca. - MontaVista Software, Inc., is sponsoring Meld, a new community for developers of embedded Linux devices.
Meld provides a forum for developers of all skill levels to connect and share information, ideas, and software related to embedded Linux designs. They can collaborate with one another, and speed the design of innovative, commercial solutions running on embedded Linux.
Challenges facing the embedded device developer include finding the right information among different resources such as the internet, peers, and manuals; determining if the information they do have is credible and complete; and finding someone with the expertise and willingness to understand and help solve embedded Linux design challenges.
Meld addresses these challenges by providing a community where developers can participate in discussion groups; collaborate on difficult design problems, sharing their expertise; use Meld's People Map to find others who share similar interests in architectures, host OS, and other topics; and identify subject matter experts and leverage their knowledge and experience to solve their own design challenges.
Although sponsored by MontaVista, Meld is a non-commercial community open to any embedded Linux developer who wants to participate.
Meld has been in beta use since late January, and is available for anyone to join. Anyone with an interest in embedded Linux development can visit Meld at http://meld.mvista.com.
