Looking for a simple and efficient tool to build your embedded Linux systems? Be it for minimal systems with just a few tools needed for kernel development, or for real products with a larger set of libraries, Buildroot is a great solution.

Buildroot is the oldest embedded Linux build system still in activity, it supports a wide range of architectures, is used by large companies such as Google, Rockwell Collins or numerous silicon vendors and is maintained and extended by a vibrant vendor-neutral community.

During this tutorial, we'll cover the basics of Buildroot usage through a set of slides and a live demonstration showing how to progressively build an embedded Linux system for a BeagleBone Black. Due to time constraints, hands-on practice by the participants will not be possible.
