One Build to Rule Them All: Building FreeRTOS & Linux Using Yocto - Alejandro Hernandez, Xilinx
Systems with a mix of architectures on a single device are commonly found on embedded products nowadays, where each processor provides different functionality; allowing developers to achieve great performance, while minimizing power consumption and cost.
Where Linux can excel at providing driver compatibility, community support and availability of software packages, an RTOS such as FreeRTOS might be ideal to make important decisions guaranteeing maximum time to perform critical operations whilst requiring a smaller footprint.

Since both operating systems might be used on a single product, a single workflow to develop applications for them would be ideal, this talk will cover how, by using a meta-freertos layer and OpenEmbedded/Yocto Project, applications can be created (and tested) via classes and recipes for both FreeRTOS and Embedded Linux, along with the toolchain and an SDK.

To showcase its usage, a sample FreeRTOS application built with the Yocto Project will be executed on QEMU during the talk.

How the Yocto Project Addressed Comcast RDK Scalability Issues - Nicolas Dechesne, Linaro & Khem Raj, Comcast
The Comcast RDK is a complex Linux software stack powering millions of set-top-boxes. In 2013 the project faced scalability issues with their home grown Linux environment which impacted internal teams and ecosystem partners.

The team engaged with Linaro to migrate the RDK into a Yocto Project based Linux distribution. The revamped RDK has been released into millions of homes throughout the world with many multi-services operators. It started with video devices but layered design has scaled beyond video devices into broadband, cameras, and other IOT devices making an infrastructure for RDK based Home OS.

Khem and Nicolas will discuss about how such a significant engineering effort was executed. They will discuss the social and technical challenges and how the Yocto Project increased the overall quality of the RDK. And also the cautions and rail-guards needed when scale hits the project.
