barebox is a new bootloader derived from the well-known U-Boot.

It aims for developers who like to use their linux-based development patterns also within the bootloader. This includes a device/driver-model, file system support using the usual commands (mount, ls, cp,...), modular design and scalability using Kconfig, shell-like scripting and alike. While being convenient, it is still easy to port to new boards or architectures. This talk will include a number of live-demonstrations and insights from the original creator of barebox.
