Redesigning the Linux video system from the ground up

Being a good open source citizen’that’s where it starts. For Jon Cruz, navigating various technical opportunities over the years eventually led him there. Jon recently started working in the Open Source Group at Samsung where he works on the Wayland project as well as IoTivity, an infrastructure for the Internet of Things.

We got a chance to catch up with Cruz prior to his talk at the Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE13x), where he’ll focus on the Wayland project, what it is, and???perhaps more importantly???what it isn’t. In this interview, Jon also gives us a non-technical explanation of Wayland and tells us what it is he wishes was more open.
