Open source projects thrive when they can accept great ideas and developers are able to extend the code to “scratch their itch”.  Developing safety critical applications, on the other hand, requires rigorous processes to make sure they won’t fail in critical ways and there’s a high threshold before change is accepted.    Zephyr is designed for devices where Linux is too big to fit, or have long battery life needs.  The project has seen a productive and prolific developer community emerge in the 3 years since its launch,  new products have already hit the market with Zephyr in them and the team is now tackling the challenge of getting open source ready for certifications as well as monitoring for potential security vulnerabilities (and coming up with fixes).  This talk will summarize the current state of Zephyr,  and its progress towards the first LTS release,  as well as the project’s plans for going after Functional Safety certifications in 2019.
