Open Source in the World of App Stores


Almost every "smart device" today runs Linux, but if you log on to those boxes you'll find yourself in a prickly and different world, where nothing works quite the way you're used to on your Linux server or desktop. It's Linux, but not as you know it! It's that way because devices need a completely different approach to software and management at scale. But perhaps we can change that - perhaps we can bring the friendly and familiar Linux you use every day to the tiniest devices, so that the whole free software community can participate in this next wave of invention and revolution. Mark Shuttleworth will talk about free software in the brave new world of IoT, app stores and the new kind of embedded Linux.
