CableLabs and RDK Management, a joint venture between Comcast, Time Warner Cable, and Liberty Global, are co-producing this year’s RDK Training Summit, to be held July 21-23 at CableLabs’ facility in Louisville, CO. RDK, the Reference Design Kit, was created to expedite the deployment of next-generation video services. The 3-day event will offer training sessions introducing the RDK architecture and provide deep dives into the individual RDK components. Hands-on training will be accomplished using RDK gateway/client devices as well as the RDK emulator. New to this year’s agenda is a Yocto Project build course presented by CableLabs. In this session, participants will complete all of the necessary steps to configure a build machine from scratch and see how it works conceptually as well as practically through an examination of the source file system layout.
