Going West: How We Develop and Maintain a Zephyr-based Microcontroller SDK - Carles Cufí, Nordic Semiconductor

Feedback form is now closed.
Carles will be discussing the challenges and opportunities in developing, maintaining and distributing a Zephyr-based microcontroller SDK.

The talk will go over the work that Nordic has done over the past few years to develop a modern, scalable Software Development Kit (SDK) for all nRF microcontrollers that uses Zephyr Project's RTOS code and tools as its foundation.
In order to reach that point Nordic has made countless contributions to the Zephyr Project, both to enable the use cases that an SDK requires and also to improve the upstream project itself. Indeed part of the mission when building the SDK is also to ensure that the open source project thrives and becomes the de-facto standard for open source MCU RTOS.

A lot of work was also required downstream, where new processes had to be established within the company to make it possible to work in cooperation with the open source projects, new tooling had to be developed to deal with forks, new approaches for contribution and code review had to be defined, and all this with a small team, aptly named Vestavind (western wind in Norwegian), coordinating the interaction between the projects and the commercial offering.
