5 Benefits of Using FreeRTOS
Richard Barry
Developed in partnership with the world’s leading chip companies over an 18-year period, and now downloaded every 170 seconds, FreeRTOS is a market-leading real-time operating system (RTOS) for microcontrollers and small microprocessors. While FreeRTOS remains an independent, open source project, Amazon Web Services's backing of FreeRTOS, has accelerated FreeRTOS kernel and related libraries development. In this keynote, you will learn about the top 5 FreeRTOS benefits surfaced by time-tested project tenets.

13:29:07	 From  Nathan O. : I've lost sound. Anyone else ?
13:29:18	 From  enrico perera : I have sound
13:29:24	 From  Gianpaolo Macario : Audio works for me
13:29:24	 From  Jon Lohr : I am still able to hear.
13:29:26	 From  Raul Pando : Working OK here
13:29:28	 From  Felipe Prado : sound is ok here
13:29:31	 From  Haroldo : I have sound as well
13:29:42	 From  Nathan O. : Thanks, I just refreshed, it's ok now.
13:29:48	 From  Alex : yes but already return
13:31:32	 From  Alexander Ziubin : Free RTOS helps developers to connect devices to cloud. Does it do good job when fast and deterministic response is a requirement for edge device firmware?
13:37:53	 From  Cristian Haba : Do you think portability can be increased if an RTOS would be available also in different languages (not only in C)?
13:41:29	 From  Leandro Pérez : My questions --->

1) I am using AWS FreeRTOS that include the vendors drivers... I needed modify that drivers, specifically Microchip because they use old drivers into the AWS distribution :( (Harmony 2)... so.. When I get a new version is a nightmare... I get the new version and copy all my code in the new version... It generates many issues in my code for forget some the line X in the source X... Is a nightmare... What advice you can give me for  migrate to a new version FreeRTOS without many problems?

2) What approach is better... Download the FreeRTOS from the AWS console with all libraries that I need OR Download FreeRTOS (https://www.freertos.org/) and add the libraries to hand?

3) What is the reason to use /* */ comments in the same in the AWS FreeRTOS code? Is difficult when I use a demo comment some part of the code for that reason
13:43:15	 From  Alexander Ziubin : Is here proprietary code (or code with different license) somewhere in FreeRTOS source code repository or in any component of "standard" package.
13:47:22	 From  Alexander Ziubin : Does freeRTOS certifications included static code analysis against bugs and security vulnerabilities?.
13:48:10	 From  Mohamed : Is FreeRTOS planning to provide core liberires for protocols like CoAP which can be more effecient in terms of energy consumption, maybe also LwM2M?
13:51:14	 From  asicsoc   to   Stephane(Direct Message) : Thanks so much, will watch the end later
13:51:18	 From  asicsoc   to   Stephane(Direct Message) : Thanks
13:52:37	 From  Alexander Ziubin : Do you see any competition pressure with other RTOS available on the market, does it "shape" (or maybe "shaped") freeRTOS roadmap?
13:55:59	 From  Erin RobotGrrl : Q: With all of this architecture and libraries, what is the impact to latency for user experience, especially with something as reactive as an IoT motor? Seem to recall anything more than 80 ms is noticeable as being slow / laggy to a human.
13:56:09	 From  Chris Z. : when is using a paid O/S like Micrium or VxWorks a better choice?
13:57:11	 From  Alexander Ziubin : What developers would miss if go with free version of FreeRTOS? Is it possible that the fleet of IoT devices will stop working because of incompatibility with AWS cloud software over time?
13:59:46	 From  Cristian Haba : In an SMP application the tasks will be allocated to cores statically, will they?
14:07:20	 From  Leandro Pérez : Is possible that you lost my questions ---> I send you again

14:09:02	 From  Cristian Haba : Is FreeRTOS DO-178 certified or intends to get this certification in the future?
14:10:04	 From  Erin RobotGrrl : Link to this book? ?
14:11:10	 From  Charles Miller : I'm not affiliated with Feabhas in any way, but Niall Cooling gave our company a wonderful week-long training on FreeRTOS.

14:11:27	 From  Erin RobotGrrl : @Tim thank you!

14:26:33	 From  Leandro Pérez : Thanks Richard
14:27:05	 From  Leandro Pérez : Thanks Richard ??????
14:27:12	 From  iainbarkley : Thanks!
14:28:03	 From  Jon Lohr : Very informative.  Thank you.
14:28:34	 From  Leandro Pérez : For all...This is a Good starting point to use FreeRTOS on ESP32
