LinuxBoot is a new project in the Linux Foundation started in December 2017. LinuxBoot is being deployed in data centers, replacing many proprietary firmware components with a Linux kernel; as well as in laptops, helping to provide a measured and more trustworthy systems software stack. LinuxBoot is also a key component of the Open Compute Platform Open Systems Firmware inititiative. In this talk, I will describe what LinuxBoot is, the many ways it is being used, and where it's going. I will also describe the many areas in which interested people can contribute, ranging from Linux kernel expertise to Go programming.
