An Introduction to Yocto

Course Description

Far from any marketing statements this course is about actual content: What is Yocto? How does it work? How do the layers work? Does every board need its own Yocto? Can Yocto solve my variant issues? Will Yocto deliver a reproducible result? Which tasks emerge for me since I am creating my own distribution? Can Yocto help with the subject matter of licensing, and if so, how?

Learn how to create a u-boot image with Yocto. Or an SD card to boot your device. At the end of this course, you will be able to integrate your own application in Yocto and understand what a device tree is, how to build your own kernel, and how to integrate it into Yocto.


To participate in this course, basic knowledge of the Linux operating system is expected as well as experience in dealing with the shell.
