Yocto - A 2-day exploration
The Yocto Project is an open-source custom embedded Linux distribution creator. However, it's power extends further: it promises to transform the way we create and work with embedded Linux.
Yocto is a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project with members including Intel, AMD, Texas Instruments, Freescale and Broadcom. Intelligent design combined with industry backing mean it's likely to become THE standard for embedded Linux on devices.
Day 1 provides a much needed introduction to Yocto, it's concepts and features. It gives you the necessary understanding to allow you to tackle the rather more complex guides and reference material produced by The Yocto Project themselves. Lab exercises give hands-on experience in many of the topics.
In this more advanced day you will:
Learn the syntax and rules of bitbake, recipes and meta layers
Learn debugging techniques
Learn methods and best practices for customising your Linux distribution
Understand more advanced concepts, including machine configurations and distribution configurations.
Understand more advanced features, including package management and GPL licence handling, Yocto Toaster
Get hands on experience working with and customising Yocto distributions.
