Devicetree Workshop

The Devicetree Workshop is a chance for developers using Devicetree and those working on the Devicetree Specification to meet and discuss the changes planned over the next year. 

Devicetree is a hardware description language used to separate the details of hardware from software runtime implementations. Operating systems and firmware read the Devicetree data structure to get details of the hardware it is running and it's configuration. 

Planned topics at this year's Devicetree Workshop include tooling for schema validation, format for binding definition files, usage model for Devicetree on microcontroller systems, and review process for changes to the Devicetree Specification document. Anyone interested in participating in this workshop should refer to the Devicetree Workshop wikipage at

Date: Thursday, October 26
Time: Morning Hacking Sprint from 9:00 am - 12:30 pm; Afternoon Discussion Topics from 2:30 - 5:30 pm

FOSSology - Hands On Training

FOSSology is an open source license compliance software system and toolkit. As a toolkit, you can run automated license, copyright and export control scans from the command line. As a system, a Web interface provides you with a compliance workflow. License, copyright and export control scanners are tools used in the workflow. Analyzing open source license compliance requires expert knowledge. Consequently, the use of the tool requires an understanding of license analysis problems and how they are covered by FOSSology. This hands-on training session will provide this understanding. The following elements are covered:

1) Challenges in real world examples at license analysis
2) Learning how to cope with license proliferation and custom license texts
3) Efficiently managing large open source components with heterogeneous licensing
4) Saving work with reusing license conclusions of open source packages when analyzing
5) How FOSSology works with the SPDX standard
6) New features in the past year of FOSSology

This course will be valuable to anyone concerned with and involved in Open Source Management, including operational and legal executives, software development managers, open source program managers, and developers. Participants are encouraged to directly work on the given FOSSology software, in the best case on their own notebook computers for using FOSSology after the session as well. Assistance for installation will be provided.


Date: Thursday, October 26
Time: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location: Tyrolka, Hilton Prague
Registration Cost: $100 USD
