The Yocto Project Summit is a virtual technical conference for engineers, open source technologists, students and academia in the OSS space. Organized in conjunction with ELCE 2020, this 2-day event is where individuals will learn about Yocto Projects’ direction -- including, but not limited to, new releases, development tools, features -- get training on the next wave of embedded Linux technologies (segment previously known as Yocto Project Developer Day), and network with their industry peers, Yocto Project maintainers and experts.

The Yocto Project Developer Day has expanded its scope to include both the workshop for engineers building customized Linux distributions and applications, as well as an open forum where maintainers, trainers, and users present papers on how the project is evolving and how they are using it.
