Ubuntu Member and Project Lead of Ubuntu Unity


In this session, I'll demonstrate how you can build your own derivative of Ubuntu with simple a YAML recipe file through Iona, a handy-dandy image (ISO) builder I wrote for Debian-based distributions. I also plan to build several new Ubuntu remixes with niche window managers live.

Unlike other existing implementations, Iona does not require any pre-existing ISOs or other images, and instead bootstraps root filesystems and images from scratch.

What audience can learn

You'll learn how to build your own Ubuntu remix from the official repositories.
