Room: Rex

Duration: 0:45

This talk is for Debian users and contributors interested in FreedomBox, which configures Debian as an easy-to-use personal server. The first part will cover the current status of the project, including current feature set in Stretch, supported platforms, and ongoing development work.

The next part will be a technical overview of FreedomBox and the main packages that it depends on. A live demo of using the FreedomBox via the web interface will be shown. There will also be information on the current setup process, and live image builds.

Next, I will also suggest ways in which the wider Debian community can help support FreedomBox, such as packaging needs and configuration. At the end, we will have a Q&A and open discussion on opportunities for collaboration between FreedomBox and other parts of Debian.
