Open Source Firmware @ Facebook

We will talk about the open source system firmware development that is going on at Facebook.

We will discuss the reasons behind working on open source firmware, and why we chose LinuxBoot as our firmware platform of choice.

We will also show systemboot, a "distribution" for open source bootloaders based on u-root, and how this fits together with coreboot and LinuxBoot.
