“Hands-On: The easiest way to set up a development environment and build a modern UI for Raspberry Pi”

by Filippo Scognamiglio

Abstract

Life as an engineer from the outside looks easy nowadays:

Grab a laptop, download a development framework, set up a target device, and get productive. But it’s not that simple, actually: large downloads, unresolved dependencies, or incompatible toolchains and sysroot kits. All of those make the traditional way of building software cumbersome.

But does it need to be that hard?

This talk is about an experiment: Is it possible to build, deploy and run a modern UI for a Raspberry Pi, all within your favorite browser, without installing any SDKs? And all set up in less than 10 minutes? Join our talk to find out and see how you can use the introduced tools within your daily development workflow.
