Yocto Building Embedded Linux - Course Overview

The Yocto Building Embedded Linux course will enable you to build your custom Embedded Linux using Yocto. Starting with basics this course will deep dive into understanding templates, tools and methods provided. By the end of the workshop you will have hands-on exposure with all components of the Yocto project.

 

 

The Yocto Build Systems Course provides a comprehensive understanding of the Yocto Project, helping developers create custom Linux distributions for embedded and IoT devices. It equips participants with essential skills to build, customize, and maintain these distributions. 

 

The introduction of the Yocto project by the Open Source ecosystem aims to enable Embedded Systems developers to create a custom distribution quickly by leveraging Yocto. The Yocto build architecture is designed in a modular fashion with customization and efficiency as the key focus areas. 

 

Emphasizing real-world applications, the course helps participants apply their learning to practical projects. Through hands-on labs, learners gain experience in troubleshooting, optimizing build processes, and leveraging Yocto’s tools to streamline development.
