Hi folks,

chatting about example uses of the project. You don't need to be a
long-standing expert in the project to help out here! If you can do a

Let's try to come up with some schedule when I should be there and just
let me know how the join the chat.

* Any contributions of video content to go along with the static web

but other contributions would also be welcome. Details on how to
upload videos is expected in the near future but for now it would be
good to just collect folks who are interested so we can discuss this

If you're interested in any of the above please reply to me and/or the
list. I look forward to virtually seeing many of you at FOSDEM 2021!

things we'd show on the stand, short demos or introductions which can
be understood by people not too familiar with the details of the

I'm going to record a short "Introducing OpenEmbedded" presentation
based around the way I usually pitch the project to folks who turn up
at our FOSDEM stand and ask what the project is about. I may also do a
quick build & boot demo with a Raspberry Pi if I have time to record
