Building an embedded project means building a bootloader, kernel, and root filesystem (with so many choices). The OpenEmbedded system, which is at the core of the Yocto Project, uses the bitbake tool to orchestrate the building of an image for a particular embedded board. In this seminar we will introduce you to bitbake, writing simple recipes, and building a minimal image to be run on the PocketBeagle development board. This seminar will include hands-on labs, so makes sure you bring a fast laptop with at least 100GB of free space.
