We have seen no slow-down of critical vulnerabilities in computing systems, luckily successful open source projects can protect us, right? Oh but wait, what if you rely on long-term-support (LTS) software that hasn’t been updated yet, or your engineers created a customized franken-kernel to support a specific product? How can you wait for LTS to be updated or hire key experts to cleanly backport critical fixes? And how do we get this to our hundreds, thousands or millions of deployed products quickly?

Instead of continuing the trend of forking and backporting, it's time to work with the community on the latest software where the developers are addressing bugs, security issues and improving performance of their projects. Ricardo and Mike will show you how you can build better embedded products with the help of some amazing new open source technologies and some good design practices.
