On February 2, 2020, GitHub took a snapshot of all active public repositories on GitHub to archive in the vault. GitHub plan was for their team to fly to Svalbard, Norway and save the most important open source projects for future generations.
We’re happy to report that KOAN was admitted to the program.
In this article we discuss how to get started with Nvidia Jetson AGX Xavier and build a minimal custom Linux distribution using the Yocto Project (YP) and OpenEmbedded (OE). At KOAN we are long time developers and users of the Yocto Project (since 2012) and OpenEmbedded (since 2009). Those open source projects are our favorite tools for creating customized distributions for IoT and AI.
We are currently working to complete activities started before the lockdown but more surprisingly we started new projects too, because companies that want to remain competitive must take advantage of this moment for a rapid recovery.
With our services we help companies as always and more than before by offering solutions to speed up their time to market.
Here you can learn what we have been doing.
This week we started teaching Yocto Project in our first online training ever.
In our virtual class we have seven participants attending the lesson through our teaching platform Whereby.
We are preparing the training calendar that will start in April stay tuned to get the latest updates or contact us if you are interested to participate to one of our online courses.
KOAN is now offering all training as online courses.
Our goal is not to reduce our teaching service to providing a mere seminar where participants listen passively, but rather continue to follow our participatory teaching style.
For this reason, the sessions will still have ‘hands-on’ workshops although more limited and compatible with the material available from each. Read below for more details.
Our headquarter in the heart of Bergamo is still open and operative. Our engineers are actively working from home and supporting our customers on the ongoing tasks.
We applied the protection rules before the decrees arrived and we implemented the best possible solution in every working environment in which we operated. This is thanks to each of the colleagues who has been responsible and acted with discipline, strength and creativity. This is thanks to the resilience of our staff.
