In some of our embedded projects, we are using Debian as the basis. In others, Yocto with its Poky distribution is the basis. Isar promises to combined the best of both: the layered, extensible, reusable set of image generation rules (bitbake) with the a mature, long-term maintained, pre-built, feature-rich distribution (Debian).

In this talk, we will present our first experiences with isar while creating a bootable image for a target device. We will look into standard tasks like defining the package set or defining partitions and file systems. We will also present how we integrated a custom boot loader and performed various customizations. This will provide a first impressions about possible workflows with isar, its strengths but also its to-dos.
