After the success of the Yocto Project Dev Day in Prague, here comes a new edition of the Yocto Project Virtual Summit.

The Yocto Project Virtual Summit is a virtual technical conference for engineers, open source technologists, students and academia in the OSS space. This 3-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, OpenEmbedded maintainers and experts.

Formerly known as the Yocto Project Developer Day, the Yocto Project Virtual Summit has an expanded scope which includes both workshops 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.

There is also a Beginners Track for people who are new to Yocto Project and OpenEmbedded.

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, cyber security requirements and more. Summit attendees will:

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

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.
