IoT is quickly becoming omnipresent in our day to day lives, but many times we
find that platforms are obsolete as soon as they hit the market, or at the very
least get little to no security or feature updates. By adapting existing Linux
distribution development practices, IoT can both improve its security, and
expand its lifecycle with minimal overhead while adding features and extending
devices lifecycles. In this talk Peter Robinson of Fedora and Jim Perrin of
CentOS will outline a 'gold standard' workflow for IoT and maker hardware,
from getting hardware support into the distro, to the lifecycle of the
applications living on the appliance without endusers ending up with an
expensive doorstop.
