Free Embedded Linux Training at Yocto Developer Day on February 14th

Use of Linux in the mobile/embedded space is exploding, and we find many companies are adopting the open source Yocto project to build custom embedded Linux systems. The project is hosting a free day of training on Yocto on Feb 14th as part of the Embedded Linux Conference. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn Yocto if you're a beginner or get more advanced if you are already familiar with the tool. Find out more about Yocto Developer Day.

Yocto includes the BitBake build tool, a large set of customizable build metadata, the EGLIBC library, Eclipse-based graphical user interfaces for both the build system and an accompanying Application Development Toolkit that is automatically generated, and several other tools that bring some order to the occasional chaos of developing systems with embedded Linux - and indeed, embedded systems in general. The Yocto Project supports multiple Intel architectures, multiple ARM architectures, MIPS, and PowerPC with standard BSPs and QEMU-based emulators. The build system that is customizable end-to-end but still easy to use. The project is supported by major embedded hardware vendors, embedded Linux operating system vendors, the OpenEmbedded Project, and many other organizations, with a governance structure based on the open source tenets of transparency and meritocracy. It's one of the Linux Foundation Labs projects I am most excited about. Seating is limited for this free training, so early registration is highly encouraged. The ELC schedule is out and this Yocto training, combined with the conference and Android Builders Summit held concurrently, should make for a fabulous week of embedded Linux. 

For those of you who want a bit more embedded Linux, we are also hosting two in-depth training courses on the weekend following the conference:
