Training Webinar:  Accelerating Embedded Product Development

Reduce Product Lifecycles with Linux and Yocto Project

Linux is increasingly becoming the operating system of choice of many embedded systems developers. They prefer the open source OS over homemade and proprietary solutions for its broad hardware support, large variety of software packages, a virtually endless roster of development tools, availability of source code, absence of royalties and last but not least its "coolness" factor. However, creating and maintaining a Linux operating system software stack is not a trivial task. Developers are facing the question whether they should build their own OS stack from scratch or whether they should tailor an existing Linux distribution to their requirements. Either approach has its advantages and disadvantages and developers may meet challenges that are hard to overcome.

The Yocto Project combines the best of both approaches by providing a complete embedded Linux system development environment allowing engineers to build pre-configured Linux OS stacks from source to image within a few hours from setup. The pre-configured software stacks can easily be modified, adapted, extended or even replaced entirely with custom ones to meet project requirements.

In this webinar, Rudolf Streif, the Linux Foundation's Director of Embedded Solutions, will show embedded systems engineers and engineering leaders how the Yocto Project tackles a multitude of common challenges when doing embedded Linux development:

  • Build system and tooling
  • Controlling your Linux operating system stack
  • Maintenance
  • Open source licensing requirements
  • Application development

Whether you are new to embedded Linux system design and considering a Linux-based solution for the first time or you have already collected experience with embedded Linux and are looking for a better approach, this webinar will show you how you can greatly accelerate embedded Linux product development with the Yocto Project.

Embedded & Yocto Courses

SECURE WEBINAR SPOT

Rudi Streif has 20+ years of experience in software and hardware engineering, product development, life-cycle management and organizational leadership in the engineering consulting and test equipment industries. At Verimatrix, Streif implemented custom head-end solutions for content security and conditional access for IPTV and DVB digital television systems.

Prior to that, as an engineering manager for Teradyne, he leveraged Linux for a high-speed real-time industrial image acquisition and processing system. Early in his career, Streif developed embedded software for automotive components, real-time simulators for testing suspension and stability control systems for commercial vehicles, and deadline scheduling algorithms for fault-tolerant real-time operating systems. Streif joined the Linux Foundation in 2010 as the Director of Embedded Solutions.

This webinar showcases some of the training that would be found in the Linux Foundation's LF411 Embedded Linux Development course and LF404 / LF405 Building Embedded Linux with the Yocto Project

Embedded Linux Development (LF411) gives experienced programmers a solid understanding of adapting the Linux kernel and customized user-space libraries and utilities to embedded applications.

Building Embedded Linux with the Yocto Project (LF404 & LF405) 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.
