Building Open Keyboards with ZMK & Zephyr // Zephyr Tech Talk #010

By January 15, 2024No Comments

Tune in on Wednesday, January 24 (9:00 AM EST / 3:00 PM CET) for a new Zephyr Tech Talk live stream where Benjamin will be joined by Pete Johanson, creator and project lead of the ZMK project.

Mechanical keyboards have become increasingly popular, and keyboard enthusiasts all over the world are leveraging open source to build the perfect keyboard that does exactly what they want.

ZMK is an open-source firmware for custom keyboards that is built on Zephyr RTOS. From USB and Bluetooth connectivity, to power management, to the handling of input keys (of course!), there is a lot that goes into controlling a keyboard. We’ll discuss the challenges of building a keyboard firmware, and dive into some of the Zephyr features that help address them.

Whether you’re a keyboard enthusiast, a Zephyr enthusiast, or neither and just interested in learning something new, we hope you’ll join us!

Zephyr Tech Talks are live streams organized by and for the Zephyr community. Join us live to get a chance to ask your questions directly to our guests, or simply catch up the recording anytime afterwards!
