XDC2015 Kicks Off This Morning In Toronto

XDC2015 Toronto is officially getting underway this morning as the annual conference about all things Linux graphics, input, Wayland, Mesa, and DRM!

Today's talks focus on atomic mode-setting, input, and the X.Org board meeting. Tomorrow is about graphics driver updates, the state of the X.Org Foundation, and other discussions. Friday's talks are then aimed at performance testing and BSD/Solaris operating system graphics.

As explained already, I sadly will not be attending in person to provide live coverage due to the large number of those blocking ads, etc, that have adversely affected the budget for Phoronix.com. But I will be working on coverage over the next three days via slides, etc. It also appears that they will be filming at least some of the presentations; they have a video release form on the Wiki but so far I've seen no other details about their A/V plans.

The list of talks can be found via the X.Org Wiki. Stay tuned for more details over the rest of the week.
