THE YOCTO PROJECT AND WIND RIVER

EASY SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT, RELIABLE COMMERCIAL LINUX

PEOPLE, CODE, AND EVOLUTION

Wind River® believes the world is changing too fast to lock our customers into proprietary technologies, so we've built expertly integrated embedded solutions based on open standards to optimize returns on open source investments.

We don't just embrace open standards—we're taking the lead in establishing them. Wind River is a founding member of the Linux Foundation's Yocto Project and continues to help maintain many Yocto Project components. We back our commitment to supporting open standards within our solutions portfolio with extensive contributions to open source and to the Yocto Project's evolution.

WORKING WITH THE YOCTO PROJECT COMMUNITY

Key Contributors

As an open source collaborative project, the Yocto Project is led by technical maintainers, developers, and contributors around the world. Coordination among industry leaders and continued active technical participation are crucial to the Yocto Project's success.

As part of this community, Wind River supports different working groups to fulfill the project objectives, assigning technical leaders ranging from sub-system and BSP/Layer maintainers like Bruce Ashfield (linux-yocto kernel and tooling, meta-virtualization, meta-zynq) and Mark Hatle (user space, RPM, cross-prelink, SELinux, Pseudo) to OE-Core maintainers like Robert Yang (OE-Core 1.5, OE-Core 2.0).
