Intrinsyc becomes Linux Foundation member
Intrinsyc, a software design and services provider specialising in Android development, has become the latest Linux Foundation member company. Intrinsyc's most notable success has been working on the development of the first Android-based e-reader, the Barnes&Noble Nook. The company plans to participate in the Foundation's activities around embedded Linux and specifically around Android and MeeGo.
“Joining The Linux Foundation is a natural next step for us” said Alkarim Kassam, Vice President Engineering, Intrinsyc. Amanda McPherson, vice president of marketing and developer programs at the Linux Foundation said “Intrinsyc brings unique expertise to The Linux Foundation, and we’re looking forward to the company’s contributions”.
The foundation has seen a steady growth in company membership of the non-profit organisation with several other companies having joined this year. A list of corporate members is available on the foundation's web site. This April the foundation is hosting the (by invitation only) Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit, followed by the Embedded Linux Conference and the Android Builder Summit.
