Embedded Linux Conference 2013 has ended

The Embedded Linux Conference (ELC) is the premier vendor-neutral technical conference for companies and developers using Linux in embedded products. This conference, now in its 9th year, has the largest collection of sessions dedicated exclusively to embedded Linux and embedded Linux developers. ELC is embedded Linux experts talking about solutions to your embedded Linux problems. ELC consists of 3 days of presentations, tutorials and Bird-of-a-Feather sessions. There are over 50 sessions to choose from, on a wide variety of topics.

[Add-On] Building Embedded Linux with the Yocto Project Crash Course (LF404) Part II

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In parallel with Android Builders Summit we are offering special short course training. These courses are prepared by well-known Linux developers and provide a unique opportunity for colleagues to train together while attending the conference, in particular those developers and systems administrators who work with teammates located in different cities.

Building Embedded Linux with the Yocto Project Crash Course (LF404)

 This two-day course is a condensed version of our full five-day class, LF405: Building Embedded Linux with Yocto. In order to save time, some sections of the full five-day course are abbreviated or skipped, depending on the needs and interests of the audience.

The Yocto Project is an open source collaboration project that provides templates, tools and methods to help you create custom Linux-based systems for embedded products regardless of the hardware architecture. The Yocto Project includes the Poky Build System as one of its components, which is a derivative of and is compatible with the OpenEmbedded Build System.

This course is designed to jump-start embedded development projects using the Yocto Project and to give software engineers a solid understanding of the build process from compilation over packaging to creating a bootable image. Upon mastering you will have a solid understanding of:

  • The Poky and Bitbake build process with its recipies and layers to customize Linux kernel and packages for a custom embedded application
  • Building Linux images for different profiles and across multiple architectures
  • the use of emulators for verification
  • the creation of board support packages (BSP) for their target hardware

You will step through all phases of embedded Linux development using the Yocto Project with laboratory exercises on an embedded target device to provide hands-on practice you can take directly to your projects.
