Laurie Jarlstrom has a BSCS and is currently a senior technical marketing engineer at Intel. She started at Intel in 1993 and has been working as a BIOS / Firmware engineer throughout her career. Her current projects include working with the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) Intel team in developing training material, managing technical content on the www.tianocore.org open source EFI Development Kit (EDK II) project, providing technical presentations and support for UEFI and EDK II for developing firmware at Intel.
Building Open Source Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) Firmware with EFI Development Kit II (EDK II)
This workshop demonstrates how to compile and build UEFI platform firmware based on the open source EDK II framework at tianocore.org. Examples are based on the Open Virtual Machine Firmware (OVMF) project, which generates a firmware for the Quick Emulator (QEMU) environment under Linux*. Further examples show the benefits of using OVMF to understand UEFI and EDK II architecture.
Participants will set up an EDK II development environment for Linux, build the OVMF platform, use their custom firmware to boot a QEMU environment, boot to the UEFI Shell, and explore common UEFI Shell commands used for firmware debugging.

This workshop demonstrates how to use the Intel® UEFI Development Kit (Intel® UDK) Debugger with GNU Debugger (GDB) to debug UEFI drivers and platform firmware in a Linux environment. Exercises are based on EFI Development Kit II (EDK II) firmware for the Open Virtual Machine Firmware (OVMF) project.
Participants will set up an EDK II development environment for Linux, build a UEFI driver, and debug firmware issues using Linux and QEMU. The workshop demonstrates debug capabilities built into EDK II and how they work with UEFI drivers and platform firmware:
• Use the Platform Configuration Database (PCD) to configure debug features
• How to debug the various phases of UEFI firmware
• Build a UEFI Driver with Debug Symbols
• Build a UEFI Driver with Heap Guard Enabled
