If you use Yocto as your tooling and build environment then you know the power and flexibility it brings to defining and creating runnable embedded Linux images.
As an open source initiative of the Linux Foundation, Yocto enables developers of embedded and IoT devices, to quickly define, configure and create runnable embedded Linux images. One of the benefits of using Yocto is that the image created is abstracted from and independent of the underlying hardware layer. Yocto is not an embedded Linux implementation, but rather builds upon its predecessor, OpenEmbedded (now known as OE-core) to bring the core embedded Linux OS and tool chain into a common and consistent environment. This makes it far simpler for developers to choose only the necessary components, and create and package an embedded Linux distribution that precisely meets their needs and is consistently reproducible.
Invaluable On-line Resources For Yocto Development
Everyone has to start somewhere. You might be interested in these informational links to get started using the Yocto tooling infrastructure or to expand your working knowledge. Here’s our round-up of the Top 10 Links for Understanding and Developing on Yocto:
Resources for Top Yocto Development Boards
If you’re working with Embedded Linux, most probably you’ve chosen a hardware development board on which to develop your project. Even if you haven’t, this list will either get your started or ensure your getting the most out of your selection.
And there you have it. Our curated list of the top blog entries, articles and sites you need to get started on and advance quickly in developing projects (particularly IoT projects) in Yocto development environments. This environment is near and dear to our hearts since it was the first OS environment we supported with Dellfer’s ZeroDayGuard. We launched ZDG in late 2018 so that IoT developers could have a way to easily and quickly secure their projects from even the most insidious, low-level attacks and the response has been tremendous. If you haven’t had a chance to learn or read about our security, we invite you to browse the product area of our website and read some of our other authoritative blogs on securing IoT devices.
