Special Presentation and SPDX Thurs General Meeting Reminder
NOTE: I am a little behind and have not posted the minutes from the March meeting in GH. In advance of that, I have included that minutes in roughg form at the bottom of this email.
PRESENTATION: Please join us for this presentation to kick off the meeting. Yocto have been very supportive of SPDX and active in incorporating the technology.
SPDX in the Yocto Project – Joshua Watt
As Software Bills of Material (SBoMs) become more important in the software industry, the generation of high quality SBoMs from the beginning of the Software Supply Chain has also become more important. The Yocto Project is designed to build up software images from source, and such is a prime candidate to generate these SBoMs at the point where software packages are compiled and assembled into customer images. Joshua will talk about how the Yocto Project is able to do this, and some of the interesting quirks encountered when implementing this feature.
Joshua Watt is a Software Engineer for Garmin, where he has been working for the past 13 years. He has been a developer with OpenEmebedded and the Yocto Project for the past 7 years, and is a member of the OpenEmbedded Technical Steering Committee.
Meeting Time: Thurs, April 7, 8am PT / 10 am CT / 11am ET / 15:00 UTC. http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html
