Amazon FreeRTOS is a new operating system designed help embedded software developers easily connect their devices to Amazon Web Services (AWS). Amazon FreeRTOS is based on the popular open source FreeRTOS kernel but extends those capabilities by providing developers with connectivity libraries such as MQTT, TLS, device provisioning and even firmware updates. In this course, attendees will learn about Amazon FreeRTOS capabilities, how to get it up and running on hardware and how to connect their own embedded systems to AWS.

March 23 – Day 5 – Creating your own a:FreeRTOS Application

With the fundamentals behind us, attendees will be provided with examples on how they can leverage the existing code to develop their own edge node devices. We’ll examine how a developer can modify the existing demonstration to subscribe and post messages to their own topics and create a generic...
