Building A Low Powered Smart Appliance Workshop
Rapid Industrial Development with Commodity Hardware

Date: February 20, 2017
Time: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location: Atrium Ballroom, Hilton Portland
Registration Cost: $250

If you have already registered for ELC + OpenIoT, add this to your existing registration here

In this hands-on, full day workshop, you will connect embedded computers to sensors and actuators while programming IoT relevant applications. Rather than writing code, you will copy and paste from finished projects in C++, JavaScript, and Python to see your work progress toward a real world IoT connected system.

Included in the course fee is a NXP FRDM-KL25Z microcontroller that you get to keep and take home. You'll use this embedded device in your first designs, examining its role in telemetry and telecommand. 

All ages and skill levels are invited to participate in the workshop. At the end of the day, students will know how to 'build a low powered smart appliance'. Please bring a laptop and smartphone to the workshop.

The instructor, a professional IoT network engineer, will teach legacy protocols like HTTP as well as modern embedded protocols like MQTT and AMQP. He will provide a number of hardware devices on load for the duration of the workshop like:

  • Raspberry Pi 2
  • Beaglebone Black
  • Tessel2 (with modules)
  • FRDM-KL25Z & FRDM-K64F devkits
  • nRF51 BTLE devkit and dongle
  • Minnowboard Turbot (TBA)
  • CC2650 SensorTag
  • Estimote & Blesh Beacons
  • SmartScope
  • Yubikey
  • Live USB

The Yocto Project Developer Day is a one day, hands-on training event that puts you in direct contact with Yocto Project developers. Over the course of the day, Yocto Project developers will walk you through how to create custom-build Linux distributions for embedded devices by using layers and recipes designed to resolve incompatibilities between different configurations. 

The proposed agenda is listed below. 

Introductory Track
- Introduction to the Yocto Project
- Key Concepts
- Build System Workflow
- Examining Recipes
- Standard Recipe Build Steps
- Working with Layers
- Build and Boot your Custom Image
- Working with Applications

Advanced Track
- New Workflows in the Latest Release of the Yocto Project
- Deep Dive and Class Exercises on Devtool and ESDK
- Brief Tour of Meta-Security
- Deep Dive Presentation and Demo on CROPS
- BitBake Event Model - The Data Source for Toaster
- New Script
- Kernel Roundup
- User Space
- Build History and Bitbake-diffsigs
- Q&A
