Buildroot is a tool that allows to automate the process of building a cross-compilation toolchain and a complete embedded Linux system, from scratch. Providing more than 600 packages for the most common free software used in embedded systems, Buildroot allows to easily build highly-integrated, custom, Linux systems, without suffering the pain of cross-compilation.

In this presentation, we’ll cover why automated system-building tools are useful, what Buildroot provides, how it works, and how it can be extended to fit your needs. The presentation will also highlight the most recent news about Buildroot, since the project has seen a huge increase in activity, with a new maintainer and stable versions being officially released.

After having spent a significant part of its free time at university on hacking small operating systems, Thomas Petazzoni worked during three years as a kernel developer in a French company developing storage virtualization software for computer clusters. He now works for Free Electrons, a small and free-software-friendly company providing embedded Linux development and training services, while enjoying the nice weather and food of the South of France and advocating free software on his spare time.
