Date and time: Tuesday October 8th, 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Location: The large event room at Hacker Dojo, 3350 Thomas Road, Santa Clara, CA.

Summary: Provisioning remote Linux devices is fraught with risk. Developers have taken quite a few approaches. Drew will discuss various approaches 
along with their risks and benefits. Bricking a device is an unhappy occurrence and one can avoid a lot of the risks with a well designed approach.
