Embedded Linux training

Our maximum popular `combo` on-line path due to the fact in only 5 afternoons you may examine the whole lot you want to start to move bring together the Linux Kernel for an ARM card and use Yocto Project to generate recipes and custom layers.

Basic path aimed toward novices with a minimal information of Linux, it gives the facts had to configure and move-bring together the u-boot Bootloader and the Kernel.

This path additionally gives the facts had to configure and use Yocto Project (and Openembedded), git and bitbake via way of means of developing an embeddded Linux distribution from scratch. Management of recipes in overlays with custom layers.

Learn to construct and control embedded Linux structures with the Yocto Project and OpenEmbedded.
If you need to now no longer waste time acting time-ingesting obligations in the course of the path, this in depth path is ideal for you.
In order to shop time, a few sections are shortened or skipped, including downloading the applications and the lengthy preliminary compilation, relying at the desires and hobbies of the participants.
