from SUSE

Gary Lin is a SUSE engineer and long time linux user. He participated openSUSE gnome development and mainly focuses on UEFI related issues now.

No video of the event yet, sorry!

In the BIOS time, the firmware is usually obscure and the OS developers have to deal with it by experience. Fortunately, nowadays most of the firmware/hardware vendors share the code from the open source project, edk2, in their own UEFI implementations, so it's much easier to understand the how the firmware works, especially the network stack. What's even better is that edk2 contains a sub-project, OVMF, to provide the firmware for QEMU, the virtual machine, we don't need a bare metal to implement features or debug hardware independent issues anymore. No more expensive flash programmer, just copy the file to update the firmware immediately. This talk will present how to develop and debug UEFI with openSUSE and introduce the upcoming UEFI features in openSUSE Leap 42.2. A live demo is also planned.
