New users struggled with the Zephyr toolchain: this is not opinion, it is a fact borne out in many past training sessions. Getting the toolchain installed and configured is a technical hurdle at the beginning of any training. While there are talks that might propose solutions in the long term, this talk is about how to do training with Zephyr as it exists today. The wide variety of user backgrounds, environments, and target hardware makes this a challenge, and continues to prevent bringing new users into the fold. These challenges multiply if attempting to train people in remote locations. This talk will cover experiments done to improve training environments and the best practices that were discovered. These include things like containerized deployment, browser based compilation, important aspects of test hardware, training documentation needs, ways to engage remote users, and more. As an attendee of this talk, you will learn what works for new users, potential pitfalls to watch out for, and how you can train up members of your organization to become Zephyr power users.
