libreCMC : The Libre Embedded GNU/Linux Distro


Embedded devices are all around us and have become deeply "embedded" into our daily lives : from micro controllers to "smart"-watches, routers and televisions, they are all around us. Many of us don't think twice about the root of control in these devices or even the software that runs on them. In some cases, manufactures lock users out from controlling these devices and cause a security nightmare when they stop supporting them. This session will cover a range of topics including : what libreCMC is, the project's goals and why Free Software is crucial in securing control and freedom.
