Raspberry Pi popularized the Single Board Computer platform, but they aren't the only player in town. In this session we will look at a few different Single Board Computer devices, what makes them different, and how you might go about developing for each platform. The SBC Form Factor Fringe Players Processor Families: ARM & x86 -- 32 & 64 bit Operating System Choices: Windows, Linux, & Android Use Cases Deployment Networking Lots of examples Don't worry, we'll include a Raspberry Pi too.

Presenter Bio

As a child I refused to learn to read an analog clock because I thought it was an outdated technology that would surely be replaced by digital clocks. That sums me up pretty well. Beyond that I am the chief developer advocate and engineer for Embarcadero Technologies with over 25 years experience as a software developer and conference speaker. I'm a published author, and inventor on multiple patents, including the basis of swipe to unlock and pattern unlock. When I'm not traveling the globe inspiring software developers I enjoy spending time with my family and dogs, and performing professional improvisational comedy with CSz Boise. Embarcadero tools are built for elite developers who build and maintain the world’s most critical applications. Our customers choose Embarcadero because we are the champion of developers, and we help them build more secure and scalable enterprise applications faster than any other tools on the market. In fact, ninety of the Fortune 100 and an active community of more than three million users worldwide have relied on Embarcadero's award-winning products for over 30 years. Even if you are yet to use Embarcadero's products to develop software, you've used software developed with it.
