The Zephyr Developer Summit, hosted under the first-ever Embedded Open Source Summit in Prague, Czech Republic, on June 27-30 included presentations, BoFs, and training designed for real time problem solving and deep discussions. More than 1,300 people registered for the EOSS conference – representing 375 organizations across 56 countries around the globe. Zephyr had 75+ technical sessions (in-person and on-demand) for 3 tracks focused on users of Zephyr, developers contributing upstream, and maintainer-specific topics.
All of the videos from the Zephyr Developer Summit can be found on the Zephyr Youtube Channel. Each week, we’ll highlight a few videos in a blog for easy access. Today, we’re featuring a few popular sessions presented by Anas Nashif, Chair of the Zephyr Technical Steering Committee and Principal Software Engineer at Intel. The sessions include “9 Years in the Making, the Story of Zephyr, Starting with Commit Nr. 1,” Embedded Open Source Summit keynote titled “The Rise of Frameworks in Zephyr: From Devices to Subsystems to Framework,” and a “Meet the Maintainers: Discuss Roles and Responsibilities, Areas of Improvements and How We Keep up as Maintainers with the Project Growth” BoF.
The story behind Zephyr and how it became one of the most active open-source projects out there. This video will go behind the scenes and will detail the background of Zephyr, how it was released to the public with many trivias and details of how things turned to be the way they are today, i.e. project structure, liscencing, architecture and the general operation of the project. The video will details where we are right now and if we have accomplished the goals we set when the project was started and will go into the future and where Zephyr is heading.
