Have you been hearing more and more about Yocto Linux? Have you ever thought, jeez, I wish I could build the Linux Kernel from source code and make it run on a mini computer? Or perhaps you regularly loose sleep thinking about what an awesome dude Linus Torvalds is? Do you LOVE open source software?

Then this is the technical presentation for you!

This talk will be an information rich, crash course on how to build Yocto Linux and deploy it on a Raspberry Pi (or any other CPU architecture for that matter).

We will discuss topics such as:

  1. The Bitbake build system
  2. Software recipes and meta-layers
  3. Git and where the source code comes form
  4. How software packages are managed
  5. Configuring the kernel
  6. Using the SDK to develop software against you new OS
  7. The Qt Framework
  8. How all the major pieces fit together

Hope to see you there!
