He has invented an award-winning open source and open hardware artificial nose that he likes to use as an educational platform for people interested in diving into the world of embedded development.

He is currently a Developer Advocate for the Zephyr Project at the Linux Foundation and lives in Toulouse, France, where he enjoys baking sourdough bread with the help of his artificial nose.

Practical SBOM Management with Zephyr and SPDX

Status: Available Now

Writing secure embedded software is a challenging task. What's more, what might be considered secure today may not be secure tomorrow. A Zephyr application is composed of many components, from the Zephyr kernel, to device drivers, to vendor HALs, to application code, and it can be difficult to exactly identify the components you're depending on to be able to assess whether you're vulnerable to a particular CVE or not.

This talk will show you in very practical terms how to leverage state of the art standards and tools to precisely identify the "manifest" (a.k.a. Software Bill of Materials, SBOM) of your Zephyr application, and how to use that information to assess your security posture and to respond to security incidents.

We will demo a variety of tools that you may want to add to your development workflow to generate Zephyr SBOMs, visualize the information they contain, check them against known vulnerabilities, and more.

Tips to Boost Your Productivity with Modern RTOSes

Status: Available Now

Developing embedded applications using modern real-time operating systems (RTOS) can be challenging, and going from a quick prototype to a production-ready application can be daunting.
In this talk, we will be going through concrete examples of embedded development best practices, and useful development tools that can not only save you time, but also help you build more robust applications. We will be using the Zephyr RTOS as an example, but the concepts and tools we will be discussing are applicable to any RTOS.Some of the topics we will be covering include:

  •   Simplifying testing through emulation software (ex. Wokwi, Renode, qemu, ...)
  •   Boosting you command line
  •   Setting up CI/CD for your embedded project
  •   Leveraging Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) to improve security and traceability
  •   Leveraging some cool Visual Studio Code extensions for embedded development

By the end of this talk, participants will have gained practical insights and knowledge to improve their productivity when developing embedded applications using an RTOS, and Zephyr in particular.
