OpenWrt is loved all over the world as the embedded Linux of choice for network-oriented applications. But how do you get it onto a commercial router? This live demonstration will teach attendees to do exactly that, featuring expert guidance from one of the key developers of the open source distribution. First, prpl Foundation Chief Technologist Cesare Garlati will explain what makes OpenWrt so popular among developers. It boils down to three key elements: It has a very small footprint, making it perfect for embedded systems It's a highly configurable, providing a menu driven UI for developers to quiclkly generate the perfect image according to their requirements It works across an extensive range of platforms, from ARM to MIPS to x86 processors and others Next, OpenWrt developer and leading open source expert Luka Perkov will give attendees a step-by-step guide on how to configure, build and deploy OpenWrt on embedded systems. In as little as 30 minutes, he'll show exactly what you need to do. The prpl Foundation has extensive experience working with the OpenWrt community. In fact, its prplWRT Engineering Group is actively working to bring users, OEMs, semiconductor vendors, global Internet providers, and the broader OpenWrt galaxy together in a community-run fashion to create mission critical, highly reliable distributions. Meanwhile, Lukas Perkov is one of the world's leading experts on the open source distribution, as one of its core developers, making this presentation one not to be missed by anyone who ever spent more than 30 minutes configuring and building a network-oriented Linux distribution.
