What is COOL?

COOL - Compact OSADL Online Lectures: Open Source meets Industry

  • COOL is a new OSADL webinar series.
  • COOL takes place regularly once a month and covers new and state-of-the-art topics on Open Source software in industry, either on legal or on technical aspects.
  • COOL editions each consist of two lectures covering a special "Open Source meets industry" topic followed by a discussion round. The first "basic" lecture provides basic knowledge with regard to the respective topic and the second "advanced" lecture dives deeper into the topic and highlights special aspects. The discussion round gives all participants the possibility to ask questions and discuss with the respective speakers and the audience.
  • COOL speakers are OSADL experts on the one hand and external specialists on the other hand who kindly agreed to share their expert knowledge on the respective topic.
  • COOL is a virtual event. The lectures are held by live video streams. Speakers will be available for questions and discussion in a video conference which will take part subsequent to the live video streams.
  • COOL in general is designed to provide support how to best and compliantly use Open Source software in industry.

Description COOL January 2021 edition:

When about 15 years ago a decision was taken to provide additions to the Linux kernel that would convert it from a general purpose to a real-time kernel, many experts were convinced that this would not work. Therefore, we can only admire kernel developers who undertook this adventure and finally are about to succeed. However, providing the Linux kernel with real-time capabilities does not mean that it always and automatically behaves this way. The reason for that is that many parts outside the Linux kernel must also fulfill certain requirements to make the entire system real-time compliant. This COOL edition will cover both - history and components of today's Linux real-time and tools and recipes to make sure that the real-time requirements are met and, if not, how to obtain them.

Recommended audience COOL January 2021 edition:

Software developers, software engineers, hardware engineers, system integrators, field application engineers, employees of QA departments, etc.
