From Yocto Project
Jump to: navigation, search

The Yocto Project BSP Summit will be held April 2, 2012 at Mentor Graphics headquarters in Fremont, CA. This summit, which happens the day before the Linux Collaboration Summit in San Francisco, will focus on the creation of BSPs based on OpenEmbedded Core and usable by the Yocto Project. In addition to presentations, the summit will include working sessions to provide developers with the opportunity to refine the common definition of BSP layers and work collaboratively on their own BSP layers. To that end, developers are encouraged to bring development boards to work on during the summit. To continue the momentum for those also attending the Collaboration Summit, the Yocto Project will host an all-day working meeting give to work on their BSPs with community members.

NOTE - Although this event is timed to coincide with the Collaboration Summit in San Francisco, please remember that the Collaboration Summit is a completely separate event. If you want to attend Collaboration Summit, you need to request an invitation from Linux Foundation.
