Take the stairs or elevator to the lower level and head East, though you will quickly lose orientation. Look for room 86-01 and note that the parking garage also provides access from a level below for $6, up from $1.50 or so. :(

Coreboot is an open-source, flexible firmware platform for x86 and other architectures. Primarily intended to be used by hardware OEMs, it has also been ported by volunteers to a small number of existing motherboards. This presentation will walk through the process of building and flashing Coreboot on a Thinkpad x220.

Joshua Elsasser is a sysadmin, software developer, and esoteric software enthusiast. He is happiest when hacking on software five layers down from wherever everyone else is working.

Organizers's notes: This is a PLUG talk I have been hoping to host for several years now. Thank you Joshua!
