The session will be designed to actively engage up to 20 participants equipped with their own laptop. The hands-on will be performed within a virtual machine (VM) and Renesas board. The aim is to present the Layer Management API and to train the participants how to use it. The Idea is to show a essential difference between wayland desktop application and wayland ivi application. During the session attendees would finish some prepared examples to realize typical ivi-hmi use-cases by using Layer Management API, then compile and deploy finished application to the Renesas board and verify the results.

The virtual machines files with GDP SDK will be made available ahead of time. Ideally all participants will have been able to confirm that the VM works properly prior to the start of the session.

The session is scheduled for Thursday afternoon.
