A grand total of seven Europe-based companies have decided to join The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux, and help advance Linux across industries. The seven companies in question are as follows: Codethink, KeyPoint Technologies, Lanedo, Meinberg Funkuhren, Picochip, Puzzle ITC and RPA RusBITech.

“We are inspired by the support and collaboration from companies throughout the world. Today’s happy to welcome our newest members from Europe,” said Amanda McPherson, vice president of marketing and developer programs at The Linux Foundation.


“Europe remains fertile ground where new technologies can grow through collaboration. We’re looking forward to our first opportunity to work face-to-face with these companies at LinuxCon Europe,” she continued.

All these companies will attend LinuxCon Europe, event that will take place in Prague from October 26th until October 28th. This will be the first ever LinuxCon Europe event. Additional info on the event is availalbe here.

And speaking of first ever events, The Linux Foundation had another interesting announcement to make at the start of the week. The Linux Foundation announced that on the 28th of November, at the Pacifico Yokohama in Yokohama, Japan, the first ever Automotive Linux Summit will take place. The summit will focus on the fact that the Linux open source helps connect the world’s network of devices, cars include. As The Linux Foundation explained, the summit is specifically designed for the automotive industry and the growing cross-industry ecosystem for the future of mobility solutions.

“Automakers are lining up to learn more about Linux and the Linux development process, and developers need to learn more about how to work with these companies,” said Jim Zemlin, executive director at The Linux Foundation. “By hosting the first ever Automotive Linux Summit, we can help bring together the brightest minds from these communities to maximize the opportunity for Linux in this marketplace.”

Additional information on the Automotive Linux Summit is available here. Registration is open through October 15.
