Your Dvd player doesn’t need to print. Your thermostat doesn’t need to browse the web. The Core project is here to provide you a base to build on, one that includes nothing unnecessary. From digital signage to custom household appliances, from virtual machines to small Android install images, building it your way has never been more convenient. You have complete control over what is included, what hardware is supported, with nothing extra and no bloat. Add just what you require instead of removing what you don’t need. This book covers Core from start to finish. The concepts are explained in detail, from usage details to internals, ending up with several example projects. A stand-alone Rdp client in 17 megabytes? You got it.
This book mainly targets those with some familiarity with Linux, with no fear of the command line. A spirit of tinkering is advised, but not necessary
