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
