Together with your ELCE registration or standalone registration.

The Yocto Project Summit, scheduled for October 31-November 1, 2019 at the Lyon Convention Centre, Lyon, France, is a technical conference for engineers, open source technologists, students and academia in the OSS space.  Organized in conjunction with ELCE 2019, this 2-day event is where individuals will learn about Yocto Projects’ direction — including, but not limited to, new releases, development tools, features — get training on the next wave of embedded Linux technologies (segment previously known as Yocto Project Developer Day), and network with their industry peers, Yocto Project maintainers and experts.

For the first time, the Yocto Project Developer Day has expanded its scope to include both the workshop for engineers building customized Linux distributions and applications, as well as an open forum where maintainers, trainers and users present papers on how the project is evolving and how they are using it.

Learn how Yocto Project-based software and new features, never seen before in the community, can help harness the power of automation and cross compiling to overcome development barriers and formulate efficient approaches to follow CI/CD models, DevOps practices, cybersecurity requirements and more.
Summit attendees will:

  • Hear from Yocto Project maintainers about current release topics such as automated testing, optimized builds, automated CVE analysis, SPDX license identifiers, automated recipe upgrades
  • Attend sessions on DevOps, cybersecurity, containers, edge computing
  • Gain hands-on experience with the Yocto Project infrastructure and tools

Our knowledgeable and engaging instructors will help you better understand topics like build system workflow, examining recipes, recipe build steps, working with layers, building applications, poky, Toaster, and devtool. Through hands-on exercises, you’ll have a chance to network and put your new skills to work, too.

Attending the Yocto Project Summit will provide you with a strong base of knowledge around the Yocto Project developer tools and how they are being used in the industry.

Day 1: Keynote and general sessions on Yocto Project technology and usage

Day 2: Breakout sessions containing 2 tracks

Track 1: Yocto Project workshop-hackathon
