The Yocto Project is a joint project to unify the world's efforts around embedded Linux and to make Linux the best choice for embedded designs. The Yocto Project is an open source starting point for embedded Linux development which contains tools, templates, methods and actual working code to get started with an embedded device project. In addition, the Yocto Project includes Eclipse plug-ins to assist the developer. This talk gives a walk-through of the key parts of the Yocto Project for developing embedded Linux projects. In addition, features will be described from the latest release of the Yocto Project, v1.3. The talk will include demos of some of the key new features such as the Build Appliance and Hob.
At the end of the talk, developers should be able to start their own embedded project using the Yocto Project and use it for developing the next great embedded device.
