Two Decades of Embedded Expertise

Opersys specializes in Embedded Android and Embedded Linux, delivering a very targeted set of training and development offerings to its customer base. Our services are tailored with a keen eye towards development teams’ most precious assets: time and resources. It’s our mission to maximize our customers’ ability to deliver outstanding products on time and on budget.

Having started as a development and consulting operation, Opersys expanded early on into training with unique classes and seminars delivered by world-class instructors. Over the last two decades, Opersys has had the privilege of working with companies such as IBM, Intel, Motorola and other such Fortune 500s on a variety of different mandates.

Opersys was founded in 1999 by Karim J. Yaghmour who pioneered the world of Linux tracing with the introduction of the Linux Trace Toolkit in the late 90’s and later went on to write O’Reilly’s seminal Building Embedded Linux Systems, which sold several tens of thousands of copies world-wide and has become a de-facto reference for embedded Linux developers. In the early 2010s, Karim once again revolutionized the embedded world by writing O’Reilly’s Embedded Android, which was the first title to cover the intricacies of Google’s extremely successful mobile OS, and went on to become the de-facto reference for anyone doing internals work on Android.

It’s our strong belief that delivering bleeding edge services requires being part of those building the ecosystem we serve. This is why we actively contribute to the open source community through a number of projects, forums and conferences.

Opersys looks forward to working with you on your Embedded projects.
