Programming UEFI for dummies

What I have learned while tweaking FreePascal to output UEFI binaries

With the upcoming end of legacy mode in UEFI firmware on PCs, every alternative and hobbyist operating systems, bare metal programmers and wannabe OS developers will have to deal with UEFI on modern hardware. After presenting the binary format of UEFI applications, I will focus on the use of UEFI APIs through EFI system table and UEFI protocols so you can get started.

Don’t be afraid by “FreePascal” in the subtitle : the core of this presentation is language agnostic.
