Get started quickly. And with confidence.

Jump Start Course

From getting started with Yocto Project or Timesys Factory and setting up your embedded Linux development environment and booting a dev kit — to building and debugging your application — you (and your team) can get answers to your questions about the best way to get productive in a hurry.

Questions? Get In Touch

We’ve tailored a program — the Timesys Jump Start Service — through which a Timesys engineer will deliver a customized, two-day embedded Linux training with hands-on exercises based on your application requirements. The Timesys Jump Start Service — which is typically delivered for a maximum of two people — begins with a review of your project and identification of your mini goal(s), after which we customize hands-on exercises, set up a training agenda, and work with you to accomplish your mini goals.

The Timesys Jump Start Course typically includes:
