What is it?

Embedded Linux Dojo is a place where people can practice, and improve their Linux product integration skills.

The goal of the Dojo is to practice building a Wi-Fi Router, with add-on features, like:

  • Activity LED
  • 3G/4G Hotspot
  • Web based Status Monitor
  • Web based Configurator
  • Caching using Transparent Proxy
  • Captive Portal
  • NAS
  • Dropbox LAN Sync
  • WPS Push Button Configuration
  • Network Diagnostics
  • Data Statistics - Top URLs, Top Domains, …
  • Web Content Filtering

How Does it Work?

  • The event is of 5 hours of duration, with 4 hours for the activity and 1 hour for demonstration.
  • People are grouped into teams of 5 members each.
  • Each team is given an Embedded Linux board with a Debian based root filesystem.
  • Instructions will be provided to build a Wi-Fi Router, using the system.
  • In the first 4 hours, the teams build the base Wi-Fi Router and add a feature to the Wi-Fi router. Some features are listed above.
  • In the last 1 hour, the teams choose one member to explain and demonstrate the feature built by their team.

Why do you charge for the event?

  1. We charge for the event, so that people take the RSVP, a little bit more seriously. That way we get a more accurate head count, since the no. of seats are limited.
  2. The amount will be put to good use for providing lunch and refreshments during the event.
