Chromebooks are super popular in schools, given away to students for free. Join us in a hands-on workshop and learn how to unlock the full potential of a Chromebook! You will learn how to transform it into a Linux-powered machine by installing a functional Linux OS, disabling write protection, and flashing new firmware. We'll also teach you how to solder together a DIY debugging cable required for re-flashing many Chromebook models. Finally, say hello to an economical, lightweight, Linux machine with an extensive battery life. We'll provide everything you need, including a Chromebook.
