Yocto Project® Summit 2019

The Yocto Project will be running its 1st Summit in 2019, the event will be co-located with the Embedded Linux Conference Europe.

  • DATE:​ Thursday, October 31 - Friday, November 1, 2019
  • TIME:​ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
  • LOCATION:​ Lyon Convention Center


The Yocto Project Summit, scheduled for October 31-November 1, 2019 at the Lyon Convention Centre, Lyon, France, is a technical conference for engineers, open source technologists, students and academia in the OSS space. Organized in conjunction with ELCE 2019, this 2-day event is where individuals will learn about Yocto Projects’ direction -- including, but not limited to, new releases, development tools, features -- get training on the next wave of embedded Linux technologies (segment previously known as Yocto Project Developer Day), and network with their industry peers, Yocto Project maintainers and experts.

For the first time, the Yocto Project Developer Day has expanded its scope to include both the workshop for engineers building customized Linux distributions and applications, as well as an open forum where maintainers, trainers, and users present papers on how the project is evolving and how they are using it.

Why Attend?

Learn how Yocto Project-based software and new features, never seen before in the community, can help harness the power of automation and cross-compiling to overcome development barriers and formulate efficient approaches to follow CI/CD models, DevOps practices, cybersecurity requirements and more.

Summit attendees will:

  • Hear from Yocto Project maintainers about current release topics such as automated testing, optimized builds, automated CVE analysis, SPDX license identifiers, automated recipe upgrades
  • Attend sessions on DevOps, cybersecurity, containers, edge computing
  • Gain hands-on experience with the Yocto Project infrastructure and tools

Attending the Yocto Project Summit will provide you with a strong base of knowledge around the Yocto Project developer tools and how they are being used in the industry.
