Date: November 6, 2020

Interested in learning how you can develop your application with Visual Studio (VS) or Visual Studio Code (VS Code), while also taking advantage of the large Linux ecosystem?

Toradex allows you to develop and debug Linux devices in the same way you program for your PC or Windows device. Plugins for VS and VSCode - currently supported are C/C++, Python, Qt and .Net Core - simplify your development workflow.

We utilize Torizon on the device side. Torizon is an open-source industrial Linux distribution with a focus on ease-of-use and maintainability.

Torizon is based on the proven Toradex Yocto Project BSP and includes a Docker runtime and an automotive-grade update client. Torizon is abstracting many of the difficulties of embedded Linux and lets you focus on your applications. Development tools such as the Security Advisor, Device Tree Configuration, Flash Analytics and the integration with IDEs further simplify development.

Experience how to get started from zero - write your first program, deploy and debug it - live!

Key takeaways:
  • Torizon advantage: modern software development (containers, CI/CD, ease of integration)
  • Languages and IDEs supported on Torizon
  • Build, deploy, debug, release your C/C++, .NET, Python application on Torizon
