EDK2Code: VSCODE Extension for EDK2 

February 20, 2024

Webinar Airing at 8 am – 8:45 am PST

Presented by Guillermo Palomino Sosa, Intel

The EDK2Code Extension is a Visual Studio Code (VSCODE) extension for EDK2 developers missing Integrated Development Environment (IDE)-like features that are present for other popular development frameworks. The extension reads the compiled information or DSC files to provide full context of what has been integrated into the build process. With this information the extension provides the user with a new set of VSCODE commands to navigate through the source code. Some examples of commands are Goto Library definition, Goto INF file, Goto Library implementation, etc. The Extension also provides context and syntax support for EDK2 files and ACPI files. The EDK2Code Extension has been released as an open-source project and is available through the VSCODE marketplace. 

This webinar will discuss the EDK2Code Extension, including its main commands and functionalities. A demo will also be shown during this presentation to walk through the extension's capabilities.

Challenges and Benefits of Integrating Wireless Drivers in UEFI Firmware

March 13, 2024

Webinar Airing at 8 am – 8:45 am PST

Presented by Hemanth Venkatesh Murthy, Dell

Adding new features into UEFI-based platform firmware commonly has challenges due to storage space constraints. Wireless Drivers, which are typically large compared to other UEFI Drivers, have additional challenges due to variants of a particular platform having different chipsets but common BIOS. 

The session will discuss the solutions that were implemented in Dell BIOS to overcome the challenges and the benefits of integrating the wireless drivers like Firmware-Over-The-Air (FOTA) and OS Recovery.
