The libcamera project was launched at the end of 2018 with the ambitious goal of giving Linux a powerful and easy to use camera stack. After a three years journey, the project has matured and is reaching its goal. This talk will start with a short retrospective of libcamera, and focus on the current state and development plans for the future. The audience will learn how libcamera benefits the Linux ecosystem, from the diverse points of view of the camera vendor, the application developer, and the end user. A successful free software project is much more than just a code base, a reality easily overlooked. The presentation will extend beyond technical topics by describing libcamera's joys and pains in its journey to collaborate with device vendors and build a community.
