Overview

The Yocto Project is an open-source project for building embedded Linux systems. It uses a build host based on OpenEmbedded (OE), which uses the BitBake tool, to construct complete Linux images

In this instructor-led, live training, participants will learn how to create a build system for embedded Linux based on Yocto Project.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the fundamental concepts behind a Yocto Project build system, including recipes, metadata, and layers.
  • Build a Linux image and run it under emulation.
  • Save time and energy building embedded Linux systems.

Format of the course

  • Part lecture, part discussion, exercises and heavy hands-on practice

Other Options:

  • Buildroot is a simpler alternative to the Yocto project
  • To request a customized training for this course, please contact us to arrange.
