In this course, you’ll obtain a solid understanding of how to build a repeatable embedded target Linux target using the Yocto Project. In addition to learning the build system, you will learn about more advanced tools like toaster, devtool, wic, eSDK, and eclipse IDE integration. This course builds on the Embedded Linux topics learned in the LFD450 class.
This course is primarily intended for experienced software engineers who are interested in learning the fundamentals of a build system for embedded Linux. You should be familiar with basic Linux utilities and text editors. Some experience with Python is helpful but not required.
Authorized printed training materials from The Linux Foundation. As part of your registration, a printed copy of the course manual will be course manual will be provided. If you are attending in person the material will be available onsite on the day the class begins.
This course will teach you how to take advantage of the Yocto Project – the open source collaboration effort that provides templates, tools and methods to help you create and maintain custom Linux-based systems for embedded products regardless of the specific hardware architecture. You’ll learn:
- How to use the Poky and Bitbake build process, with its recipes and layers to customize Linux kernel and packages for a custom embedded application
- How to build Linux on an embedded board
- How to use emulators for verification
- How to create board support packages (BSP) for target hardware
- And more.
The information in this course will work with any major Linux distribution.

- Customizing Images
- Adding Packages
- Kernel Recipes
- Development Tools
- Application Development Toolkit
- Licensing and Compliance
Why train with The Linux Foundation
The Linux Foundation is the go-to source for training on virtually every aspect of Linux and many other open source technologies. Here are a few things that make The Linux Foundation the right choice for training:
- The Linux Foundation is the non-profit organization that hosts Linux and many other open source projects, employs Linux creator Linus Torvalds and hosts kernel.org (where all Linux kernel updates are released).
- Being so close to the kernel The Linux Foundation is constantly updating training to ensure that the most up-to-date information is being thought. Linux Foundation Training is unique in that all our training courses are designed to work on all major Linux distributions (including RedHat, Ubuntu and SUSE).
- The Linux Foundation does not sell any software or support services so there’s no hidden sales agenda in the training material. The only goal is to help students learn the material.
- When you train with The Linux Foundation, you’re learning from instructors who are comfortable across all major Linux distributions and can answer student questions regardless of the distribution you’re using for the class. You are truly learning from the experts.
