I created a talk titled Embedded Linux – un pinguino piccolo piccolo (“Embedded Linux – a small small penguin”) to explain the basics of embedded Linux systems to a moderately technical audience.
Here’s the abstract:
An embedded system is a computer, but it doesn’t look like. It can have infinite variants: peripherals, memory, shape… The only rule is that there are no rules! Let’s discover how complex a tiny embedded Linux system is. Then let’s discover how simple it can get bringing an ARM board to life using Buildroot.
