Creating Embedded Linux Products with OpenEmbedded

Accepted Session
Short Form
Scheduled: Tuesday, June 1, 2010 from 2:30 – 3:15pm in Burnside


Learn about the current state of embedded Linux distributions and advantages of the OpenEmbedded framework for developing Linux-based products.


Getting started in embedded Linux development can be intimidating. Every hardware device vendor seems to have its own embedded Linux distribution and way of developing for it. OpenEmbedded is a framework for creating highly customizable embedded Linux distributions. It provides a well-designed build system and cross-compilation environment to developers, and a robust package management system for setting up and maintaining your embedded Linux system.

Find out why OpenEmbedded is taking the embedded world by storm and improving the lives of embedded Linux developers.

This presentation will be accessible to a wide developer and IT audience. Some knowledge of how Linux distributions are put together will be helpful, but not essential.
