Papers, ports and pull requests

This is the sixteenth post in a series tracking the development of Tock, a safe multi-tasking operating system for microcontrollers.

This week has been pretty quiet as we all put our heads down preparing submissions for SenSys and SOSP. Things will start picking back up in a couple weeks, but for now your usual, although abrdiged, installment of activity from the last week.

Some of the Tock developers will be at IPSN in Pittsburgh next week. Say hello if you see them!

More chips and platforms

There have been a fair bit of questions and offers of assistance porting Tock to some readily available hardware platforms, particularly the STM32-based discovery boards. The Tock team is all very supportive of such efforts. On the side, we’ve begin playing around with @japaric’s excellent tutorial on bring up of the STMF3DISCOVERY.

If you are interested in these efforts, please join the tock-dev mailing list and/or chime in on IRC (#tock on freenode)
