Debian has traditionally been thought of by many as a desktop operating system but over the past few years significant effort has gone into enabling Debian to run on embedded targets. The result of this is system designers have a solid set of over 51,000 verified packages to choose from in their embedded system. In this talk Chris will describe the process of creating an embedded system derived from Debian packages in a few lines of YAML markup using an open-source tool called Debos: Debian OS builder. Pairing Debos with GitLab Chris will describe how Collabora are enabling manufacturers to automatically and securely deploy their new operating systems and custom packages nightly to developers for their upcoming system. Chris will share the complete back-story and steps to begin creating your own images. No previous experience of Debian or YAML is required for this talk.
