Endian Technologies Hosts Zephyr Hackathon at FOSS North 2019

By March 22, 2019 No Comments

Endian Technologies AB will be hosting a Zephyr hackathon during the FOSS North 2019 Community Day on April 7!

Zephyr Project member Nordic Semiconductor has provided all attendees with access to their new development board based on the nRF52840 chipset.  The nRF52840 is fully multiprotocol capable with full protocol concurrency. It has protocol support for Bluetooth 5, Bluetooth mesh, Thread, Zigbee, 802.15.4, ANT and 2.4 GHz proprietary stacks and has low energy consumption.

Pizza, soft drinks and coffee will be provided throughout the day.

TOPICS

The hackathon will kick off with an introductory presentation, bringing everyone up to speed on the Zephyr RTOS, the development process and the build system. After this, you’re free to work on one of the suggested topics, or go nuts on your own project.

If you’re interested in Zephyr but aren’t sure what to work on, don’t worry! A list of ideas will be provided that should appeal to all attendees, regardless of their experience level.

Do you have a topic you’d like to explore at the hackathon? Don’t be shy – share it with us! (see contact information below)

REQUIREMENTS

Only a basic understanding of writing and compiling C programs is necessary. All you need to bring is your laptop and a passion for development!  The development boards will be provided at the event, but you are of course welcome to bring their own boards, peripherals and tools as well.
