Overview

The goal of the Newcomers Guide is to connect people using the software with resources for learning about and contributing to the project. If you just want to get starting building with Yocto, the Quick Start Guide is for you!

As you have questions, these are the two manuals that can help you understand both Bitbake and Yocto.

Also, feel free to ask questions on our mailing lists or stop by our IRC channel.

Resources for Learning

There is a getting started video that will give you a high level overview of the Yocto Project.

Rudi Streif gave a great talk at the Embedded Linux Conference in 2015.

For more presentations, check out our presentation page for a full lists of talks given about the Yocto Project.

Rudi has also written a book, "Embedded Linux Systems with the Yocto Project".

Otavio Salvador and Daiane Angolini have also written a book, "Embedded Linux Development with Yocto Project".

How to Contribute

First, and most important, is to read our community guidelines.

If you have changes that are specific to poky, there is a page discussing contributions to poky on this wiki. Also of note, the OpenEmbedded wiki has a page where you can learn how to submit a patch to oe-core or meta-openembedded. There are various patch guidelines, as well as a styleguide which you should familiarize yourself with before submitting a patch.

The Yocto Project tracks bugs using bugzilla. You may want to review our bug guidelines to help understand this process.

Newcomer Bugs

The Yocto Project has a newcomer bug category which are bugs suited to someone new to the project, in order to learn more about the development process within our community, and become familiar with the project.
