Dedicated online sessions
We can also propose dedicated online sessions. This way, you can choose the dates and times that best suit the needs and availabilities of your teams.
|No public session planned at the moment.
Groups: ask us for a session on your own site
Individual: what locations and dates would interest you?
We can also send a trainer to train your engineers at your own location, anywhere in the world (we have taught classes on all continents). See how to register.
Objectives and target audience
The Yocto Project provides an integrated environment to develop and debug custom embedded Linux systems, similar to the commercial embedded Linux development environments.
This course targets engineers who wish to use the Yocto Project and OpenEmbedded to develop their systems, matching their exact requirements, and supporting their particular hardware. Of course the Yocto Project and OpenEmbedded take care of most of the generic details, leveraging the experience of other community developers compiling the common Open Source blocks and supporting well known hardware platforms.
At the end of this course, you will be ready to use the Yocto Project to develop your own embedded Linux system and the applications running on it.
Here are the main topics that we cover:
- Understanding the Yocto Project
- Using it to build a root filesystem and run it on your target
- Writing and extending recipes
- Creating layers
- Integrating your board in a BSP
- Creating custom images
- Application development with an Eclipse SDK
See the detailed agenda.
All the training materials that we use during this course are freely available. Before the session, you can then check that they correspond to your needs.
Labs are performed an embedded ARM board. Both the BeagleBone Black and the STM32MP157C-DK1 Discovery boards are supported. You will use such a board to boot the root filesystems that you build with the Yocto Project, and to run and debug the custom applications compiled with it. This experience will be useful for dealing with any type of board.
Each lecture in our course is followed by a practical implementation, representing 50% to 60% of the whole course time.
Participants need to have some existing knowledge about embedded Linux, as taught in our Embedded Linux training.
Bootlin has proven time and again that their expertise in Linux trainings is unparalleled. Not only were the already existing trainings invaluable for training of our personnel, but they were also willing to adapt and reintroduce new trainings, custom tailored for our needs.

By the way, you can also see evaluations from previous sessions. In the same way we are transparent with our training materials, we share all the evaluations that we collect, not only the best ones.
